The Project Jean Monnet Network - BRIDGE, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, the Latin-American Center for European Studies - LACES, in partnership with the Escola Nacional da Defensoria Pública da União – ENADPU (Brazil), the entire academic community and other interested parties to participate in the training course “The European Union's regional integration process and its impact on the provision of legal assistance in Latin America”.

The objective of the course is to examine the legislation and policies of the European Union in order to understand how this process of regional integration deals with complex legal issues that impact the provision of legal assistance offered in Latin American countries. Particularly, it is intended to identify the policies and legal instruments available to facilitate judicial cooperation and build new bridges of dialogue between the European Union and third countries, in particular, Latin American ones.

The course will be taught virtually on the ENADPU platform with live classes on October 6th, 8th, 13th, 14th, 18th, 20th and 22nd, always from 10am to 12pm (Brasilia time). Subjects will be taught in Portuguese or Spanish.
