EJN in civil and commercial matters

The European Judicial Network in civil and commercial matters (EJN-civil) is a flexible, non-bureaucratic network which brings together national judicial authorities. It aims to simplify and strengthen judicial cooperation between Member States. In operation since 2002, the EJN-civil improves the practical application and implementation of EU civil justice instruments. In such way, it contributes to building bridges between the different justice systems of the Member States and thereby creating mutual trust.

The Network's main tasks are direct contacts and case-handling between national Network contact points, facilitating cross-border access to justice through information given to the public and to practitioners through factsheets and other publications available at the European e-Justice Portal in all Union languages, evaluating and sharing of experience on the operation of specific Union law instruments in civil and commercial matters.
