THE OFFICIAL START OF THE FILIT PROJECT

5 February 2021

 

The UEHJ is a partner in the European Project FILIT (For the improved implementation of EU law through interprofessional training) which officially started on February 1st, 2021.

FILIT aims to train judicial officers and lawyers on EU law using a blended learning method to:

–           improve the implementation of EU legislation in the fields of civil/commercial, criminal, family law, and data protection.

–           raise awareness of legislation, jurisprudence, and foster dialogue between judicial trainers of different national backgrounds, while strengthening cross-border cooperation between the different actors in civil proceedings in Europe.

The objective of the project is to provide training on a large scale:  at least 360+ beneficiaries directly involved in the training activities. Additionally, the project estimates the participation of at least 70+ beneficiaries participating in the inter-professional conferences.

The project will organize the following activities:

–          3 online training of trainers on EU law.

–           1 seminar on Legal English.

–           3 recorded inter-professional conferences on EU legal affairs back-to-back with 3 training sessions in line with the topics of the conferences.

–           10 e-learning modules concerning the practical application of EU regulations and EU fundamental rights.

The expected results of this project are a better application and understanding of EU law instruments in civil, family, commercial, and criminal matters, a better understanding of the impact of data protection legislation in the daily practice of judicial officers and lawyers, responsible for managing complex amounts of personal data, improve Legal English terminology and communication skills, a better application of the EU Charter on Fundamental Rights and procedural guarantees and final large dissemination of e-learning modules on EU law to ensure continuous training and exchange of practices.
