Within a common legal area - whether that of the European Union or the Council of Europe - and beyond legal traditions and specific national characteristics, what elements are shared by the various court systems or differentiate them?
The organisation of the courts, procedural rules, implementation of public policy, the role of supreme courts, handling of family disputes, or the place given to victims are all issues where the exchange of experience offers prospects for reflection and improvement for all systems of justice.
Teaching: comparative analyses, the work of the Council of Europe, academic research, and discussions among judges from several different countries provide the basis for this session, focusing on themes found at the heart of the concerns faced by judges and prosecutors. The approach will also highlight the broad outlines of the European model in judicial matters, beyond the sometimes-different legal frameworks. This training is therefore for judges and prosecutors both from Europe and other countries wishing to deepen their knowledge of the practice of justice in Europe and engage in discussions regarding their national systems.
Open to judges and prosecutors
