On Monday 15 February, the CNUE kicked off the project "EU L@w for Notaries - Notaries for EU L@w", its new training programme for European notaries. With the support of the European Union and over a period of two years, the project aims to train notaries in three priority areas of EU law: 1) family law; 2) company law and 3) data protection law, by combining face-to-face interactive seminars and e-learning. A further important step will be the preparation, development and implementation of an e-learning platform. This will host a number of webinars, e-learning modules and MOOCs on the three topics mentioned.
In this way, the CNUE intends to contribute to the new strategy for judicial training on the period 2021-2024, presented by the European Commission on 2 December 2020. This strategy broadens the scope of the EU training offers for legal professionals to include new policy areas, such as digitisation and artificial intelligence. It also sets ambitious targets: by 2024, 30% of notaries should be trained in EU law every year.
