EU criminal law for defence counsel 2nd series 2013-2014

This second EU-wide project will offer defence counsel training on EU criminal justice instruments and judicial cooperation. The project will also feed into the step-by-step approach agreed by the EU on the establishment of certain procedural safeguards by presenting this approach and explaining and discussing the first measures taken with defence lawyers throughout the EU. The project is co-finaced by the European Commission under its Criminal Justice Programme. The project will consist of five seminars conducted throughout the EU in the years 2013
and 2014. Each seminar will be targeted at different groups of selected Member States (approx. 25 participants from 4-5 Member States per seminar). The training will last 1 ½ days from midday on Friday to late afternoon on Saturday.The project will last 17 months starting on January 2013. The seminars are scheduled to take place in May 2013, June 2013, October 2013,
November 2013, and February 2014. In order to cover as many Member States as possible, the five seminars are distributed around the EU and will take place in Vilnius, Rome, Dublin, Prague and Barcelona. The project is co-financed by the European Commission under the Criminal Justice Programme.

You will find information about the 1st serie and reports of the past events by clicking here.
