25 October - European Day of Civil Justice
On 5 June 2003, the Ministers' Deputies of the Council of Europe decided to launch a European Day of Civil Justice, jointly with the European Commission.
Celebrated yearly on 25 October by member states organising a series of events in this framework, this manifestation aims to bring justice closer to citizens, to inform them on their rights through simulation of procedures and information sessions open to students, professionals of justice and general public and also through open doors to their courts.
The Council of Europe and the European Commission invite their member states to inform them of all events organised in this context. European citizens can find out about events once the Secretariat has been notified of them.
