Summer Course: European Criminal Justice

with preparatory e-learning course

, 6 July 2009 – 10 July 2009

Event number:

Area of law:

This course will provide participants with an introduction to EU criminal law and to the instruments for cooperation in criminal justice matters. It will consider the origins, the institutional system and the legal framework of criminal justice cooperation in the EU, including:
  • European police and judicial cooperation under the Schengen Conventions
  • EU criminal justice developments since the Maastricht Treaty
  • Legal instruments dealing with police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters (Europol Convention, Convention on Mutual Legal Assistance)
  • Mutual recognition in the EU: existing legislation and proposals (European Arrest Warrant)
  • EU legislation referring to serious cross-border crime
  • Organisation of police and criminal justice cooperation (European Judicial Network, Eurojust, Europol, OLAF)
  • Defence rights in the EU
  • The EU Reform Treaty: forthcoming implications for the ‘third pillar’?
Participants will have the opportunity to prepare in advance through an e-learning course via the ERA website, and to deepen their knowledge through case-studies and workshops during the summer course.

A visit to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg with the opportunity to attend a hearing is an integral part of the programme.

The size of visitor groups to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg is strictly limited by the Court for practical reasons. Unfortunately we are therefore unable to guarantee that all summer course participants will be able to attend. Places for the ECJ visit will be allocated to registered participants on a 'first come, first served' basis.
