From February 2013, the CCBE (Councils of Bars and Law Societies of Europe) and EIPA Luxembourg (European Centre for Judges and Lawyers) are implementing a European Union pilot project with two main objectives:
Doing a state of play might sound quite dull, but how to build the future without concrete facts on the current situation?
We can look forward to knowing how training of lawyers is organised in another Member State or finding about the existing training providers. National factsheets will be drafted on the basis of data gathered and available online.
Promoting good practices? This is about empowering national and training providers to learn from each other and thus improve the quality and quantity of training available to lawyers. Let’s stop reinventing the wheel and recycle proven training methods and cross-border exchanges.
It is the first time that such a broad ranging survey dedicated to training of lawyers is put in place by the European Commission, following on resolutions and decisions of the European Parliament and building on the 2011 Communication on European Judicial Training.
Come on and participate! Learn more about the European Context of the study, answer questionnaires online, read about the project, or get the news.

- This survey provides the basis for the first Europe-wide state of play on trainingof lawyers, more specifically regarding EU law.
- “Good practices” is a very generic concept which can pertain to different aspects and stages of the preparation, organisation and implementation of professional training of lawyers.
This document proposes to evaluate which good practices can apply to different aspects of organisation, delivery and assessment of training activities
- Different criteria should be used to determine whether a specific aspect of the organisation and implementation of an activity related to professional training of lawyers is a good practice.
