On 11 and 12 December 2008, the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE) is organising, in partnership with ERA (Academy of European Law), a meeting on the practice of European family law with the following format:

  • Roundtables on Thursday afternoon to provide thorough information on European texts and proposals;
  • Workshops and discussions on Friday in order to consider practical cases, to debate and to exchange know-how.


  • Cross-border legal relationships and their consequences (e.g. divorce, custody decisions and their enforcement abroad, maintenance) confront family lawyers with complex legal problems. New legal acts at the European and international level affect their daily work. Legal practitioners are therefore required to deal ever more with legal questions arising from cross-border family and parental responsibility cases.

    Areas of Law: Civil Procedure, Family Law & Law of Succession, Judicial Co-operation in Civil Matters, Private International Law.

    Target audience: Lawyers in private practice and judges. No previous expertise in EU family law is required to attend the conference.

    Location: Management Centre Europe (MCE), Rue de l'Aqueduc 118, Brussels, Belgium.
