At a glance

The European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ) is the Council of Europe intergovernmental body responsible for the standard-setting activities of the Council of Europe in the field of public and private law.

The competence of CDCJ is defined by the terms of reference that it is given directly by the Committee of Ministers, the statutory decision-making body of the Organisation, depending on the priorities of the Council of Europe and the needs of member States. Its main role is to draw up standards commonly accepted by the 47 member states and to foster legal co-operation among them. It also supports member states, upon request, to implement the standards it drew up and in providing expertise in its fields of competence in the framework of their justice reforms.
