Approach and methodology

Definition of court staff

Since the definition of court staff varies from one country to another, the following functional definition will apply to the project: “personnel of a court – regardless of their formal title or education – who have certain judicial or procedural functions and need to apply EU law procedures to fulfil those functions”. Relevant judicial or procedural functions include inter alia: enforcement of court decisions, assistance to judges, service of judicial and extra-judicial documents, cross-border cooperation in civil matters (for e.g. completing requests to courts in other countries).
