Linguistics Programme

The EJTN Linguistics Programme is designed for the training of the EU judiciary in legal English, French and German across different fields of law. Several legal language seminars are organised each year as part of this programme, which began in 2011 in various EU countries. 

AIM

The Lingsuistics Programme's seminars aim at developing both the legal and linguistics skills of EU judges and prosecutors and creating the conditions for direct contacts between legal practitioners of the different Member States in order to promote a common European legal culture.

KEY TOPICS

The courses are intended to familiarise participants with the various legal instruments in the different fields addressed and provide them with training on specific terminology. The training adopts an interactive, small-group methodology and features the participation of tutors, a linguistic expert and a legal expert.

ACHIEVEMENTS

In 2018, 553 European legal practitioners from over 23 EU Member States received training under the auspices of EJTN’s Linguistics Programme. In 2019, over 738 participants are expected to attend the eleven linguistics trainings and four Summer Schools offered by EJTN’s Linguistics Programme.
