Event number:

Areas of law:

This seminar is part of a decentralised series offering in-depth training in the practical use of EU instruments on mutual legal assistance and mutual recognition of judicial decisions in criminal matters. One specific aim of the series is to train groups from selected EU Member States which are geographically close to each other and therefore connected in terms of cross-border cooperation.

The seminar will address judges and prosecutors from the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and Slovakia who have already gained significant practical experience in cross-border judicial cooperation and in applying EU mutual recognition instruments.

By means of case studies, participants will learn about the practical questions that arise under their own legal system and moreover, under the systems of their colleagues in other member states when executing a European Arrest Warrant, freezing order or confiscation order, exchanging evidence and criminal records. The new competences of Eurojust, particularly regarding Joint Investigation Teams, will be outlined. Finally, time will be devoted to present and debate forthcoming mutual recognition instruments and instruments envisaged under the Stockholm programme such as the Framework Decision on taking account of convictions, the extension of the European Evidence Warrant and the changes that the Lisbon Treaty will bring to the field of European criminal justice.

The seminar will be coordinated by national and European experts. An introductory e-learning course will be offered.
