Train to Enforce

The project Train to Enforce is coordinated by the Faculty of Law University of Maribor with funding by the Justice Programme of the European Union. Numerous project activities will be conducted in order to improve the knowledge of EU instruments for cross-border collection of debt among practitioners, in particular European small claims procedure (Regulation No. 861/2007) and European order for payment procedure (Regulation No. 1896/2006). In addition to these instruments, linguistic barriers related to cross-border collection of debt will be addressed. The project activities which consist of 24 seminars and a webinar will be offered by training teams of academics from 7 EU Member States and 1 candidate State. Cross-border exchange of academics during the course of the seminars will ensure the transfer of good practices and the promotion of mutual trust in the administration of justice among Member States. Academics from the candidate State will - due to (as of yet) non-implementation of law instruments for cross-border collection of debt - participate in a “train the trainers” event. Cross-border exchange of academics will inter allia promote the creation of a network of trainers among project partners in Member States and the candidate State. The results of the project will not only be aimed at improving the knowledge of EU procedural law instruments for cross-border collection of debt of seminar participants, but will, with published materials, also promote self-learning on cross-border debt collection of lawyers who did not have time to attend the seminars.
