We have collected the positive responses we have had from participants of our Online Summer Courses and Annual Conferences.

In recent months, ERA has had to switch conferences which were planned to take place in person as face to face events, to an online format. Exceptionally this is the first year that we have had our Summer Courses take place online and the feedback as been positive. Below are some comments that have been shared with us after each event.

Our aim was to be able to replicate the interactivity of our Summer Courses and to enable networking and connections between participants. For some Summer Courses we were able to provide an online evening entertainment in the form of group wine tasting - by organising the wine to be posted to participants in advance of the event.

Quotes from the Online Summer Course on European Criminal Justice

22nd June 2020


“It was fantastic to still be able to participate in such an excellent and informative event despite the current constraints. I particularly enjoyed seeing (even in a virtual sense) colleagues and academics from across the EU and sharing experience, initiatives and problems encountered in our respective justice systems. I thought the course content was excellent in terms of the variety of topics discussed and the expertise and quality of the speakers. Well done to all the speakers and course organisers. You did a wonderful job.”



“Valuable knowledge, great online platform without any technical problems.”



“Overall, the content of the course succeeded to deliver interesting insights on many topics, which can be found relevant for the work of the legal practitioners, as well as, for individuals working in the academic environment.”

Quotes from the Online Summer Course on the Rule of Law in the EU

22nd June 2020


The selection of speakers was excellent, with each offering an interesting point of view from a wide range of perspectives. I was also impressed with the range of backgrounds and experiences of the participants, from civil servants to judges and officials. I was amazed to hear that this was the first time that this course had been done online.

I have gained new knowledge on this topic from top-of-the-top experts in this field, to ask them direct questions but also I had a chance to meet and interact with the brilliant people participating in this course. Everything was organized impeccably. Workshops were also very useful and encouraged us to think more critically, to argue and to share our opinion.
