The objective is to contribute to the effective and coherent application of EU law in the areas of civil law, criminal law and fundamental rights, judicial ethics and the rule of law, by helping to address the training needs of justice professionals in these fields. It also targets the specific training needs of court staff and bailiffs, as well as prison and probation staff.
The 2019 priorities will focus on training activities and tools for training providers to:
1. tackle gaps in training for:
- court staff and bailiffs, for example by cross-border training activities or exchanges of good training practices, in all areas of EU civil, criminal and fundamental rights law relevant for their judicial work;
- prison and probation staff, for example by cross-border training activities or exchanges of good training practices, on EU law and fundamental rights relevant for their work, including on countering radicalisation to violent extremism in prison, on the minimum standards laid down by the Council of Europe or on rehabilitation programmes;
2. support the training of justice professionals, in particular via:
- seminars with easy linguistic access (e.g. by providing interpretation in the languages of all participants, national breakout groups or linguistic programme components) to attract legal practitioners that are reluctant to participate in a seminar in a foreign legal language and therefore have not yet participated in from cross-border training activities;
- cross-border training activities for multipliers, such as judicial trainers or EU law court coordinators, where there are guarantees that the multipliers will pass on their knowledge to other legal practitioners in a systematic way;
- training activities with participants from at least two different justice professions, such as judges/prosecutors, judges/lawyers, lawyers/notaries, courts staff/bailiffs, court experts/court interpreters, prison/probation staff, to stimulate discussions across judicial professions about the application of EU law and contribute to a European legal culture across professional boundaries.
For priority area 2), the activities may cover EU civil, criminal and fundamental rights law, legal systems of the Member States, judicial ethics and the rule of law, knowledge of cross-border IT tools and linguistic skills of legal practitioners in areas with particular added value.
An evidenced-based training needs assessment for the topic of the training activity is mandatory.
Priority will notably be given to training on the following topics: civil law, criminal law, anti-money laundering, fundamental rights.
Applications should notably take into account recommendations from the Advice for training providers of DG Justice and Consumers or expand good practices identified by the EU pilot project on European Judicial Training to other Member States or justice professions.
The initial project duration should not exceed 30 months.
