On 8th January 2024, the (For the improved implementation of EU law and the use of information and communication technology (ICT) systems in the fields of EU judicial cooperation through interprofessional training).

The project, which has been granted to us by DG Justice (https://commission.europa.eu/about-european-commission/departments-and-executive-agencies/justice-and-consumers_en ), will enhance the implementation of EU law and leverage information and communication technology (ICT) systems in EU judicial cooperation.

e-FILIT is the follow up of the FILIT project. It is thus the second time that the UEHJ is involved with such a large-scale training project to train bailiffs, judicial officers, lawyers, and this time judges as well, on EU Law using a blended learning method.


Project goals

The two-year e-FILIT project, scheduled from 8 January 2024 to 7 January 2026, employs a blended learning approach to strengthen the application of EU legislative instruments in civil, commercial, and family law. It emphasises the significance of digital tools, encourages dialogue among legal professionals from diverse backgrounds, and fosters cross-border cooperation in civil proceedings across Europe.

With a potential reach of over 565 individuals in the target group, including EU Member States’ training institutions, the project will support bailiffs, judicial officers, lawyers, and judges in the development of their knowledge and the acquisition of new skills. Beneficiaries across the involved institutions will gain access to the project’s webpage and comprehensive training materials, facilitating a profound impact on legal professionals.


Project deliverables

The project’s goal is to directly benefit over 565 participants through the following activities:

  • e-learning modules on EU judicial cooperation instruments.
  • face-to-face trainings on Legal English.
  • online training seminars for trainers.
  • inter-professional conferences;
  • and a final conference, to drive better application and understanding of EU legal instruments.

Through its efforts to promote legal education to a widespread audience of legal practitioners, e-FILIT is well-positioned to leave a lasting legacy of empowering legal professionals throughout Europe and represent a critical turning point towards a more educated and connected legal community.
