Since its creation in 1963, the European Committee on Legal Co-operation (CDCJ) has developed a large and wide-ranging number of civil law standards in the field of public and private law aimed at helping Council of Europe member states meet the challenges of rapidly evolving societies, whether they concern protection of the individual, the family, civil society, the courts and the judiciary, access to justice, the public administration, or private business. 

You can find out more by clicking on background to the Committee.

While CDCJ works on activities in progress it is also working actively on promoting completed activities, as the past work of the Committee is still very relevant today (please see below):
