Seminar “Access to Justice for Persons with Disabilities”
The training is designed to address the experiences of persons with disabilities in court. Persons with disabilities face significant barriers in judicial proceedings and their specific needs need to be taken into account by the courts. This is particularly true in the case of persons deprived of their legal capacity and obliged to act through an appointed legal guardian.
Please note that participation is only open to members of the judiciary (judges, prosecutors and other court staff) from EU Member States, Iceland and Liechtenstein. The selection of participants will be done by the EJTN members.
The application deadline is 1 October 2019.
