The 2011 seminar for national judges and representatives of national regulatory authorities (NRAs) was organised by the Academy of European Law (ERA) in association with the European Commission, Information Society and Media Directorate-General.

Following the adoption of the new EU rules on Telecommunications in 2009 and other important complementary harmonisation measures in 2010 and 2011, this years' focus was on the role of the national judiciary in implementing the revised regulatory framework in electronic communications, with particular attention to some specific issues concerning the appeal procedure against decisions adopted by NRAs.  The seminar also dealt with the important role of European institutions, like the European Commission, the Court of Justice of the European Union and the newly created Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC), in achieving a true single market in electronic communications.
