Good judicial training practices

These good training practices were collected from 23 judicial training organisations across Europe such as national judicial training institutions, the Academy of European Law (ERA), the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) and EJTN.

Each of the resulting 65 good practices, arranged under five themes, present the key features of the good practice, highlight the relevant contact persons for the good practice and provide comments and further analysis about the good practice.
