PURPOSE AND USE
EJTN is devoid of any profit motive and has as its aim the promotion of training programmes with a genuine European dimension for members of the European judiciary and for court staff. EJTN exclusively and directly pursues objectives of a non-profit making character. In particular, EJTN establishes an annual programme of activities promoted among its members and others invited to participate.
EJTN is built on a membership-system, by which membership is available to all national institutions of the Member States of the European Union specifically responsible for the training of the professional judiciary and for the training of prosecutors (where they form part of the “corps judiciaire”). These institutions will be called “members” in these T&C. One can become a member by applying for it to EJTN’s General Assembly. Please find the full information on membership in EJTN’s Articles of Association, the document can be found here: EJTN Documentation.
