European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ)
  At a glance
The European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ) is an intergovernmental body, set up in 1963 under the auspices of the Committee of Ministers, which is responsible for the standard-setting activities of the Council of Europe in the field of public and private law.

The CDCJ's main role is to draw up standards commonly accepted by the 47 member states and to foster legal co-operation among them.


The CDCJ is composed of representatives of all member states - principally from the ministries of justice - who meet once a year at the headquarters of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg (France).

Francesco Crisafulli (Italy)
A Word from the Chair
Welcome to the website of the European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ).

At the 89th plenary meeting (29-31 October 2014), I was most honoured to be re-elected Chair of the CDCJ for 2015. This plenary meeting was particularly dynamic, setting out an ambitious programme for 2015 that will stimulate the Committee to go even further in its work towards the protection and promotion of individual rights within Europe's changing and evolving legal systems (for more on the Committee ...).

CDCJ activities tackle common challenges such as those addressed in the recommendation on preventing and resolving disputes on child relocation that the Committee of Ministers has recently adopted (see below), or the need to develop a legal instrument on the impact of the internet and new technologies on rules of evidence and modes of proof. More information on the activities and work of the Committee can be found by browsing through the menu to the left of this page.

The website will be updated as work advances and we would like to invite you to continue exploring on a regular basis so you can follow its progress.

We thank you for your visit and hope to see you again shortly on our website.
