The first meeting of the ELFA-ELI European Jurist Project took place on Friday 21 September 2018, at the Société de Législation Comparée and at the Cour de Cassation, in Paris, France.

The European Jurist initiative aims at generating a hub to develop mechanisms enabling further Europeanisation of the legal profession.

During this initial meeting the participants shared their experience of internationalisation of legal education and their ideas and motivations in relation to the project. At the end of the meeting two working groups were created, one which will focus on education at university level (both graduate and postgraduate), and the other group, which will focus on continuing education for lawyers and judges.
