MOOC (massive open online course) on European family law

The Council of the Notariats of the EU, which is coordinating the 2018-20 training programme ‘Europe for Notaries - Notaries for Europe’ (co-funded by the Justice Programme), has shared its first MOOC (massive open online course) with us on European family law.

Covering the application of EU legislation on matrimonial property regimes and registered partnerships (Regulations 2016/1103 and 2016/1104), the 2018-20 training programme Europe for Notaries - Notaries for Europe’ is aimed at legal practitioners wanting to:

  • explore the subject in greater depth (articles written by notaries and academics)
  • better understand the Council’s training activities
  • discover the various practical tools available.

The findings are set out in a publication, available:

The project supports the objectives of EU judicial training, in line with the Commission policy paper ‘Building trust in EU-wide justice. A new dimension to European judicial training’.

It aims to help civil law notaries correctly apply new EU legislation on matrimonial property regimes and registered partnerships, and Directive 2015/849 which addresses money laundering.

The project, in partnership with national notary bodies, will organise 21 seminars in 14 EU countries. 12 of them will focus on family law and 9 on money laundering.

More information concerning the project and its seminars are available here.
