Training material

The European e-Justice Portal is one of the tools contributing to the development of European judicial training. By providing access to information and other educational material, it significantly increases the number of people who can self-train and/or incorporate European legislation into their training sessions.

In line with UNESCO's 2012 Paris OER (Open Educational Resources) Declaration, the European Commission wants to do as much as possible to promote open educational resources and open courseware for legal practitioners.

There are many reference sites with useful resources for European judicial training at local, regional or national level. Also, the Commission has produced training materials in various areas of European legislation in response to specific needs stemming from the degree of technicality or the high number of legal professionals dealing with them.
