A five day, face-to-face course designed for EU judges and prosecutors working within judicial cooperation in civil matters.
It aims at developing both legal and linguistics skills of the participants by combining legal information and language exercises in a practical and dynamic way.
Participants are divided in four small groups, three to be developed in English and one to be carried out in French.
Each group is trained for the entire week by a team composed of a linguist expert and a legal expert acting simultaneously.
The course combines theoretical and practical sessions of the four basic language skills: reading, writing, speaking, listening, within legal terminology.
Before the face-to-face seminar components, participants will be invited to check their knowledge and prepare for the seminars by doing some legal and language exercises, which will be prepared by the project experts, and available for participants on EJTN’s training platform.
