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
The European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ) is an intergovernmental steering Committee created in 1963. It has a mandate mainly to steer legal co-operation among the Council of Europe member States in the fields of private and public civil law, in order to promote and facilitate co-operation and understanding between them as well as to identify the challenges that Europe and its various legal systems are faced with as a result of the developments in our societies and the emergence of new instances and claims.
