Criminal Justice

 

In order to tackle the increasing number of complex cases with a transnational dimension, EJTN’s Criminal Justice seminars offer Europe’s judiciary tailored training seminars within this diverse field. The seminars adopt a unique learn-by-doing methodological approach in order to ensure practical and lively sessions.

AIM

EJTN’s Criminal Justice seminars are intended to promote a better understanding about the current EU legal framework of Criminal Justice in order to enable practitioners to work together across the borders. Furthermore, the seminars aim at bolstering the awareness and knowledge of several areas of EU Criminal Law such as asset recovery and confiscation, cybercrime and e-evidence or procedural rights in order for practitioners to embrace EU law as part of their daily praxises.

Collaborative partnerships, particularly with the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training (CEPOL), and other networks and entities (i. e. JITs Network; The European Network of contact points responsible for investigating and prosecuting persons responsible for genocide, crimes against humanity andwar crime) are utilised through specialised trainings.    

KEY TOPICS

The Criminal Justice training seminars consist of interactive sessions, simulations, group's work and the review of case-studies inspired by real facts in order to animate debates and promote interaction between practitioners attending the different events. These trainings cover a wide range of legal topics, including:

  • Cross-Border Judicial Cooperation (EAW?EIO and MLA simulations)
  • The European Investigation Order (gathering and admissibility of evidence)
  • Procedural Safeguards (Roadmap  Directives)
  • Counter-Terrorism
  • Cybercrime and E-evidence
  • Financial Interests of the EU and the EPPO
  • Asset Recovery and Confiscation
  • Victim's rights
  • Core crimes 

The collaborative partnership with CEPOL brings together law enforcement and judicial communities for joint courses on, inter alia, JITs, illegal inmigration, financial investigations, counter-terrorism or corruption. 

ACHIEVEMENTS

In 2018, EJTN’s Criminal Justice seminars provided for 24 events and 1 webinar attended by practitioners and implemented with the support of selected expert speakers. The trainings received a very positive feedback from the attendees and were subsequently highly recommended by practitioners to their colleagues in different EU Member States.
