The purpose of the two day-long seminar is to give judges dealing (even occasionally) with cross border disputes in civil and commercial matters an insight in the EU-rules.
All three Regulations:
No 593/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 June 2008 on the law applicable to contractual obligations (Rome I),
No 864/2007 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 July 2007 on the law applicable to non-contractual obligations (Rome II)
No 44/2001 of the Council of 22 December 2000 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgements in civil and commercial matters (Brussels I) – amended by Regulation No 1215/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2012 (Brussels I bis),
- create a uniform, normative complex of private international law of civil and commercial obligations – aimed to complete itself.
- could be characterized by a common concern: to favour the predictability of law and judicial certainty within the European legal space.
Expert speakers will be called to expand upon these rules, situate them within in the framework of the EU-legislation on judicial cooperation, and focus on their practical application.
In order to combine the theoretical approach furthermore with a more concrete one, different workshop sessions will be organized to provide a widened knowledge on this important EU instrument and its related case-law, and to facilitate the exchange of best practices amongst the participants.
