The CJC specific training methodology is based on the premise that judicial training is a continuous process which should be the result of mutual exchange and learning between academics and legal practitioners, and between legal practitioners from different jurisdictions, Member States, and legal traditions. Our methodology includes a toolkit that offers not only basic, detailed information but also stimulates the active engagement of legal practitioners with the practical problems concerning the scope and application of fundamental rights.
The objectives of the CJC training methodology are the following:
– Creation of a common legal culture
– Enhancement of mutual trust and exchange
– Dissemination of judicial interaction techniques.
Therefore, the training tools elaborated by the CJC are not the result of an academic exercise; rather, they are based on direct and continuous collaboration with the legal practitioners, selecting and testing the most relevant issues, and consequently national and European cases, that are then included in the training tools made available to the public.
Given that there is an increasing body of rules that are not only based, but also influenced and affected by EU law in many fields, legal practitioners may have difficulties in understanding the boundary between purely national and “unionised” legal rules, which have to be benchmarked against a different set of fundamental principles.
In this sense, the CJC toolkit provides for a full-fledged training where the EU’s most recent legislative and judicial intervention are analysed from both the European and national perspectives.
