Assessment of applications

Knowledge of and experience with the consumer protection and fundamental rights, as well as a very good knowledge of English, are essential preconditions for being selected.

The assessment of applications will also be based on the following criteria:

  1. Balance in terms of gender, age, and nationality;
  2. Diversity of judicial competences: the call is open to civil, administrative, and criminal judges; in addition to judges, a minority of public prosecutors or state attorneys may be selected, especially for topics in which they can meaningfully contribute;
  3. Balance in the judicial hierarchy: both higher and lower instance courts shall be represented among selected participants;
  4. Inclusion of non-judicial enforcers: the participation of officials from independent regulatory authorities and from other non-judicial enforcement mechanisms will be sought;
  5. Single participation within the same Training Project (RE-Jus): in principle, no participant can take part in more than one Workshop among those offered within the RE-Jus Project. In exceptional cases, deviations are subject to express and prior permission of the Coordinating Unit (University of Trento).

Candidates will be notified about the result of the selection process within two weeksfrom the closing date of the application procedure.

Commitments of participants

If selected, candidates shall commit to take part in all sessions of the Workshop and to prepare for the Workshop by reading the relevant materials in advance. During the Workshop, they are expected to actively engage in the discussion and share their knowledge and experience with the rest of the group.

Additionally, participants will be involved both prior to and following the Workshop with a view to actively contributing, on the basis of their experience at national level, to the development of the outputs of the Re-Jus Project: i.e., an online Database on EU and national case-law; Case-books on the enforcement of fundamental rights and access to effective justice; and Guidelines on the choice of procedures and remedies under the principles of effectiveness, proportionality, and dissuasiveness.
