Contribute to the quality of judicial expertise by joining the EEEI

In the future, EU legislation is likely to influence the work of judicial expertise. One of the main goals of EU legislation in this particular field is to set guidelines for expertise procedures. New guidelines will influence local procedures and they affect the work of experts but also of judges and lawyers. Harmonising in the long term inevitably means that existing local laws and regulations are altered over time.

It is the opinion of the EEEI that changes may be for the better when decisions are based upon correct information and on proven best practices. In this respect and with the goal of improving the quality of expertise and its use within justice, we act like a think tank to produce studies and develop proposals.

The objective of the present and future EEEI projects is to inform the European institutions, whether they are part of the European Union such as the European Commission (Directorate General for Justice) or the Council of Europe (European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice) as well as any other European organisation depending on the type of project, about the essence of judicial expertise in the broadest possible sense.

We do this preferably taking into consideration the opinions point of view of Judges, Lawyers, Experts and Academics. EEEI recognises these four professional parties in the judiciary and judicial expertise as the main stakeholders and we bring them together within our institute.

 The EEEI invites you to:

  •  Work with the EEEI in European projects that are funded and supported by the EU and organised by the EEEI. By participating, you are representing the interests of your country’s judiciary practices, showcasing good local practices and in that way, having influence on future EU legislation. Contributing to these projects is not remunerated. Please contact our secretariat on the status of any project.
