At a time when the rule of law is increasingly threatened in Europe, the training of future lawyers on European Union law is often marginal and insufficient, the European Commission has said.
The European Union has now launched a call for projects based on the need for European training centres to work together to share their respective good practices.
This has resulted in the LITEL project (Lawyers Initial Training on EU Law), an initiative that paves the way for the creation of a dedicated network of lawyers in Europe.
The efforts began with a visit to Paris in April for a presentation on training systems.
The delegation will be visiting the Law Society from 25-26 September for sessions on lawyer training methods, and a discussion of how to facilitate the exchange of best practice between training centres for future lawyers in Europe.
This visit will be followed by visits to Prague and Barcelona.
