eLaw hosts INFORM workshop for the judiciary

On Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th of December 2018, eLaw, the Center for Law and Digital Technologies at Leiden University, will host a two-day workshop for the judiciary on the new EU Data Protection Law that came into force earlier this year.

The focus of the workshop is on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Law Enforcement Directive 2016/680 (LED) for the processing of criminal law data.

The workshop will be attended by 30 judiciary representatives, mostly judges, from approximately 20 EU countries. During the workshop, the participants will be trained in all aspects of the new EU data protection laws, so that they can further implement this legislation in their national judiciary systems and further train other colleagues. This workshop is part of a series of six workshops hosted throughout the EU for the judiciary, legal practitioners and court staff. All workshops are organized within the context of the INFORM project. For more information, please have a look at the INFORM project website.
