Administrative Law

The EJTN Administrative Law Portfolio foresees a large offer and designs and implements high-quality and practical trainings for the EU judiciary in an array of areas. The EJTN Administrative Law Sub-Working Group (SWG) works to develop best practices and methodologies to design dynamic half-a-day seminars with the aim of training Administrative Law Judges, Prosecutors, Trainers and Judicial Professionals in Europe. Depending on the structure of each seminar and the experts involved, different teaching methods are used in such trainings: framework lectures, working group sessions where participants discuss practical cases and exchange views on their domestic legislation and the application of the relevant EU Law, interactive workshops, moot court simulations and projection of videos and material.

AIM

EJTN's Administrative Law trainings seek to bring together administrative law judges, prosecutors and trainers and provide participants a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and best practices with their counterparts across Europe, as well as to discuss the most recent developments in their field of professional interest with leading experts and practitioners. All trainings include a set of framework lectures and multiple workshops where participants discuss practical cases and exchange views on their domestic legislation and the application of the relevant EU legal instruments.
