Cofunded by European Union

Implementation
The project is being implemented by EIPA Luxembourg - European Centre for Judges and Lawyers (ECJL) in partnership with KSSIP – Krajowa Szkola Sadownictwa I Prokuratury in Poland and the European Criminal Bar Association.

Introduction
The EU has been active in adopting legislation in the field of criminal law in order to facilitate judicial cooperation among EU Member States, to fight serious and organised crime and in general to tackle cross-border criminal activity. While there are a number of legislative instruments at place, it is crucial that practitioners, judges and prosecutors are not only aware of the existence of EU legislation, but understand and apply the relevant European – level instruments. This is especially true for mutual recognition instruments which aim to put cross border judicial cooperation in criminal matters at a truly different context, requiring mutual trust and more intensive cooperation both from national authorities and legal practitioners. The leading mutual recognition instrument, the European Arrest Warrant, is certainly the pivotal EU criminal law instrument. Please click here to read more.
