Dear colleagues,
I hope this finds you well.
With the cooperation of the European Commission, ERA has been selected to organise a series with the aim of bringing the CFR EU closer to European legal practitioner. We are currently organising a seminar entitled “The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union in Practice: Training Seminar for (Administrative) Judges”. It will take place in Paris  on 21-22 November 2013 in French in cooperation with and at the premises of theConseil d’État. This seminar will deal with the scope and application of the CFR EU as well as demonstrating the interpretation, applicability and relevance in the domestic legal order. Participants will also receive instruction on the relationship of the CFR EU to other international human rights instruments such as the ECHR as well as national human rights provisions.
The seminar is addressed to 50 judges (30 from France and 20 from other Member States but with a particular emphasis being placed on the judges participating from Belgium, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain). It can be also open to judges from other Member States in case there are not  enough judges in the mentioned countries.
