The training materials cover eight different areas of EU criminal law and are aimed at judges, prosecutors and defence lawyers, as well as other legal practitioners. It is envisaged that they will be primarily accessed by trainers, but legal practitioners can of course make use of the materials themselves. The material provides information on the legislation in force regarding judicial cooperation in criminal matters, the national application of existing EU instruments and the directions in which EU criminal justice is moving.
These seminars were developed by the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) under a Framework Partnership Agreement with the European Commission in 2011-13, during which period eight training activities were delivered in eight EU Member States.
