Practical Skills Training
Core legal skills training is essential, especially at the beginning of every lawyer’s career, to give them a strong footing for practice
European Law in Practice
Effective Training Solutions for EU Lawyers!
The Practical Law Academy is a practical legal skills training programme for lawyers, judges and court staff throughout the EU. It is designed especially for those who are trainee legal professionals or who qualified no longer than 5 years ago.
During a four-day weekend, our experienced team of professional trainers demonstrate how to improve core legal skills (inc. litigation strategies, oral and written advocacy) and how to correctly apply a range of cross-border EU law instruments that are relevant to your individual practice area, whether civil or criminal.
Each training event takes place in a different city and is co-hosted by the leading lawyers’ associations. Places are limited (maximum 30 participants per training) due to the interactive, small group methodology which is adopted on each Academy.

Civil Law Instruments

Criminal Law and Fundamental Rights Instruments
Focuses on numerous EU instruments which affect the investigation and prosecution of criminal offences, and a range of EU fundamental rights which can be used for the benefit of your clients.
