Judges and prosecutors and court staff from all EU Member States
The seminar is designed to provide the basic training in European Civil Procedure in Family Law matters.
Short description of the programme:
The added value of the two day-long seminar consists of delivering in-depth insights on diversified aspects of civil procedure in family Law matters (e.g. cross-border divorce and parental responsibility).
The training will be carried out by leading academics and practitioners. Expert speakers will present the Brussels IIb and Rome III Regulations and discuss issues like jurisdiction, applicable law, recognition and enforcement of decisions and cooperation in matters of parental responsibility and child abduction.
In order to combine the theoretical approach with a more concrete one, workshop sessions will be organised in order to provide a widened knowledge on EU legislation and case law and facilitate the exchange of best practices.
