  September 29th, 30th, 2005 : Colloquium on the “European judicial area”  

On September 29th and 30th, 2005, our colloquim on the “European judicial area” took place at the French National School for the Judiciary in Paris. This colloquium addressed three subsections: 1/ the “judicial Europe” for judges and prosecutors, 2/ the “judicial Europe” and the law, 3/ the “judicial Europe” for judges and prosecutors.

Among all the topics that were discussed, we were able to addresss specifically Eurojust and the “European Prosecutor”, a common, minimum set of rules in criminal law and criminal procedural law, the mutual recognition of judicial decisions, especially on civil matters, as well as the European stakes of family law, or the training of European judges and prosecutors.



  October- December 2005: Our members go on short-term judicial trainings all over Europe  

 

EJPA members have actively participated in the training activities proposed by the PEAJ exchange Program in the various E.U. countries.


As a matter of interest, the European Commission published an “invitation to submit projects”, proposing internships in European Courthouses to 200 judges and prosecutors for the year 2005. The French National School for the Judiciary answered this invitation and its project was selected. This project is an pilot program, which may be extended if the 2005 exchanges show positive outcomes. The European Commission officially qualified this project as a “vocational, training action” for judges and prosecutors. These trainings were to be implemented in the form of internships in a European courthouse. The length of such internships was set to two weeks (at least ten working days).


Between October 2005 and December 2005, around 20 young judges and prosecutors were sent to courthouses all over the E.U. Among those “juniors”, 90% of the candidates who were selected by the ENM were members of the EJPA, as Ms. CECCALDI-GUEBEL, then-director of the ENM vocational training and the international relations unit, reminded us when she participated to our colloquium in September 2005.


As a result, the 14 following EJPA members participated in the PEAJ program:

  • Anne-Laure BASTIDE, Romania

  • Julien BERGER, Romania

  • Anabelle BRASSAT-LAPEYRIERE, Greece

  • Viviane BRETHENOUX, Germany

  January 18th, 2006 : President Deleuze meets Bruno Sturlese, Head of the European and International Affairs Unit of the French Ministry of Justice (SAEI)  

 

On January, 18th, 2006, Nicolas DELEUZE, President of the Association, and Benjamin ALLA (Spokesperson and Director of the Colloquium Department), met at the Ministry of Justice with Mr. Bruno STURLESE, Head of the European and International Affairs Unit of the French Ministry of Justice (SAEI), and Ms. Helene DAVO, in mission for the SAEI.


At first, the following accomplishments of the Association were presented:

  • its newsletter (La lettre des magistrats de l’Union Européenne) ;

  • its September 2005 colloquium on the European Judicial Area ;

  • its chatting list and its internet website ;

  • its partnership with the French National School for the Judiciary (ENM) concerning the internship program for judges and prosecutors in Europe (aka. Exchange Program for Judicial Authorities, PEAJ) ;

  • its partnership with the ENM on the update of European index cards ;

  • the ties that have been created with various institutions, such as the European Commission, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Judicial Training Network (EJTN), the French Court of Cassation…


Then, the Association’s perspectives were discussed, especially the following themes:

  • a colloquium on the notion of a “reinforced European judicial area” or on a “ Schengen area for justice” ;

  • the introduction of the Association in Brussels to different E.U. authorities.


Finally, we discussed the general role of the Association in the perspective of reinforced ties with the SAEI : the Association should become more and more a “relay” thanks to its chatting list, so as to inform on-the-field professionals (e.g. to inform its members of the creation of a new position as liaison officer, or to pass on new forms dedicated to the judicial mutual assistance convention). It could also allow on-the-field professionals to share some information and let the upper authorities know about it, e.g. in explaining their daily difficulties on the field in relation to the international area, such as translation issues, the necessity of simplified proceedings…

  Judicial internships in other European countries: PEAJ 2006  

 

The European Judicial Training Network (EJTN) gathers together the various institutions in charge of the training of judges and prosecutors all over the European Union. The European Commission gave the EJTN the responsibility of implementing the 2006 Judicial Exchange Program (PEAJ). That pilot project has three main objectives:

  • the development of exchanges between judges and prosecutors in Europe (250 proposed) (objective A)

  • the creation and development of online teaching aids that can be used by judges and prosecutors (objective B)

  • the development of an exchange program for the persons in charge of the judicial training (objective C)


This exchange program aims at allowing judges, prosecutors, and future judges and prosecutors from the Member States of the European Union, as well as from the candidate countries, to do an internship within the jurisdiction of another Member State of the E.U. or of a candidate country. The goal is to reinforce mutual confidence between judicial authorities, and to contribute to the realization of a real area of freedom, security and justice in Europe. In order to ensure the conception and the coordination of the program in close cooperation with the various contacts, who represent every single partner institution and who are designated by those, the EJTN hired a team of 4 persons, located at its headquarters in Brussels, 43 square Marie-Louise.

The entire list of the missions and activities organized by the EJTN are available online at: http://www.ejtn.net
