The purpose of this course, which is aimed primarily at national legal practitioners, is to highlight the relevance of EC law to the daily work of the national lawyer and to describe the various types of proceedings before the Community Courts (the Court of Justice of the European Communities, the European Court of First Instance and the European Union Civil Service Tribunal) in which a national practitioner is likely to get involved.

Course participants will have the opportunity to attend a hearing of the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg. The size of visitor groups to the European Court of Justice is strictly limited by the Court for practical reasons. Unfortunately we are therefore unable to guarantee that all participants will be able to attend. Places for the ECJ visit will be allocated to registered participants on a "first come, first served" basis.

The participants will be able to deepen their knowledge through workshops.

Participants will also have the opportunity to prepare in advance for the seminar through an online e-learning course and to test their knowledge via the ERA website. The e-learning materials aim at providing the basics of the topic that the seminar will build on and thus ensure that all participants have a common basic level of knowledge before they start.
