In its 2015 report on judicial training, the European Commission highlights once again the European notariat’s excellent involvement in this area. Commissioner Vĕra Jourová herself points out that for most of the legal professions training activities are on the increase, and that this is especially evident for the notariat. In 2014, the Commission identified 132 000 legal practitioners, including 7893 notaries, who had received training on EU law or on the law of another Member State. Finally, the Commission reports that in 2014 around 25 000 legal practitioners followed EU-funded training.
The Notaries of Europe are pleased to have made a significant contribution to the European Commission’s ambitious aim to train 50% of legal practitioners (700 000) by 2020. The report is available at the following address: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/criminal/files/final_report_2015_en.pdf
The CNUE is continuing its efforts in terms of training for the notaries of Europe. Following the success of its first training programme, Europe for Notaries – Notaries for Europe, the CNUE has begun a new programme in 2016 involving the organisation of 11 seminars in 11 Member States with the new European regulation on international successions as the main topic. The first seminar was held in Vienna on 29 January and the next one will take place in Brussels on 18 March 2016. The full list of seminars is available at the following address: http://www.notaries-of-europe.eu//index.php?pageID=12905
