Objectives of the project

The project aims to increase the participation of lawyers, notaries and bailiffs in trainings on EU procedural civil and commercial law. This will be achieved through the organisation of transnational training activities with easy linguistic access and the training of trainers who will act as multipliers. The diverse group of Member States comprising the consortium (Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Poland) will promote the exchange of knowledge and good practice. The proposed action is supported by 16 professional associations and competent institutions for all target groups in the participating countries.

Expected outcomes of the project

The project result´s will include: Better understanding of the target groups’ training needs in 5 Member States, training of 15 trainers who will pass on their knowledge as multipliers, increased number of lawyers, notaries and bailiffs trained on EU law, capacity building for 120 lawyers, notaries and bailiffs in 5 Member States on the application of EU procedural civil and commercial law, increased awareness on the impact of EU law in the relevant policy area, development of a common culture and enhancement of mutual trust.

Argumentation for the need of funding

The proposed project will have a tangible impact on the target groups, providing practitioners from 5 Member States with the opportunity to participate in high-quality cross-border capacity building activities. In doing so, it will promote the creation of a common culture and enhance mutual trust among the participating Member States. The project’s long-term impact will be maximised through the creation of multipliers and the engagement of professional associations and competent institutions, many of which have already pledged their support to its activities.
