Funds for: Supporting judicial training with a view to promoting a common judicial culture
Main beneficiaries: Public entities, Private organisations, International Organisations

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Support and promote judicial training, including language training on legal terminology, with a view to fostering a common legal and judicial culture;
* Contribute to the effective and coherent application of EU law in the areas of civil law, criminal law and fundamental rights, judicial ethics and the rule of law, by helping to address the training needs of justice professionals in these fields. It also targets the specific training needs of court staff and bailiffs, as well as prison and probation staff

Priorities
* Tackle gaps in training for:
– Court staff and bailiffs, for example by cross-border training activities or exchanges of good training practices, on all areas of EU civil, criminal and fundamental rights law relevant for their judicial work;
– Prison and probation staff, for example by cross-border training activities or exchanges of good training practices, on EU law and fundamental rights relevant for their work, including on countering radicalisation to violent extremism in prison, on the minimum standards laid down by the Council of Europe, or on rehabilitation programmes
* Support the training of justice professionals, in particular via:
– Seminars with easy linguistic access (for example, by providing interpretation in the languages of all participants, national breakout groups or linguistic programme components) to attract also legal practitioners to cross-border training activities that are reluctant to participate in a seminar in a foreign legal language and therefore have not been reached by previous cross-border training activities;
– Cross-border training activities for multipliers, such as judicial trainers or EU law court coordinators, where there are guarantees that the multipliers will pass on their knowledge to other legal practitioners in a systematic way;
– Training activities with participants from at least two different justice professions, such as judges/prosecutors, judges/lawyers, lawyers/notaries, courts staff/bailiffs, court experts/court interpreters, prison/probation staff, in order to stimulate discussions across judicial professions about the application of EU law and contribute to a European legal culture across professional boundaries

Among financed actions
* Organisation of interactive, practice-oriented seminars (including implementation of training modules created by the European Commission on EU legislation in civil law);
* Multilateral exchanges between legal practitioners (except for judges and prosecutors whose training bodies are members of the European Judicial Training Network (EJTN) and may thus take part in the exchanges organised by the EJTN);
* Cross-border initial training activities (face-to-face activities or exchanges), covering as many Member States as possible, to create a common European legal culture from the start of entering a legal profession (except for newly appointed judges and prosecutors for whom the equivalent activity is funded via the operating grant of the EJTN);
* Joint study visits to EU courts by legal practitioners (other than judges/prosecutors, already covered by the operating grant of the EJTN) from as many different Member States as possible;
* Creation of training material, whether for presential learning, blended learning or e-learning, ready-to-use either by trainers or by practitioners for self-learning;
* Tools for training providers (for example, train-the-trainers events, tools to support the organisation of training in the other Member States, etc.), including to facilitate their cooperation at EU-level (for justice professions other than judges/prosecutors, who are already covered by the operating grant of the EJTN)
