The European Commission wishes to make material available which will be helpful both to legal practitioners for their own use and to trainers of legal practitioners as a resource for their work. This subsection of the European e-Justice Portal is dedicated to the field of legislation against organised crime. Information about current and future European legislation relating to the fight against organised crime can be found on the Home affairs pages of the Commission's website.
This e-learning course includes a general section about EU law and criminal matters as well as specific sections on the fight against money laundering, the management and disposal of assets confiscated from criminal organisations and transnational insolvencies. It brings a perspective which includes the civil law consequences in the matters because it was elaborated from the point of view of civil notaries. It was developed in the framework of a project led by the Fondazione Italiana per il Notariato and co-funded by the European Commission.
The course is available here in English and in Italian.
The aim of this initiative is to help judicial training institutions to develop training programmes on cybercrime and electronic evidence for judges and prosecutors and to integrate such training into standard initial and in-service training in this field. It should furthermore facilitate networking among judges and prosecutors in order to enhance their knowledge and to encourage interested partners to set up training activities.
This initiative was developed over the course of 2009 by the Council of Europe (as part of its project on cybercrime) and the Lisbon Network of judicial training institutions, in cooperation with a multi-stakeholder working group.
The course is available here in English.
