EU Criminal Law: Training for EU judges at CEELI

The CEELI Institute is proud to have initiated a new effort this year, funded by the European Union, to provide much needed training for judges from the eastern countries of the EU on relevant EU law, instruments and directives governing the application of criminal lawThis project was held in Prague, but was jointly organized with our partner, the Association of Croatian Judges, and represents the first time both organizations have directly implemented European Commission funding—a milestone step for both.  The initial three program sessions held at the Villa Grebovka and delivered between February and April 2018, brought together 83 judges from Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. The program focused on the role of judges in ensuring that defendants in criminal cases have full access to their rights guaranteed by EU law.  The course specifically focused on application of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, and the related Directives on the right to information in criminal proceedings and on the right of access to a lawyer in criminal proceedings.  The trainings were led by Judge Marin Mrčela, President of the Group of States Against Corruption (GRECO) and Judge at the Croatian Supreme Court, and funded by the European Union’s Justice Programme (2014-2020).
