Capacity building: Judicial training

In 2009, the Council of Europe developed a concept for cybercrime training for judges and prosecutors. Implementation of this concept has since been supported in numerous countries, typically in cooperation with domestic judicial training institutions. More recently, networking of judges and prosecutors trained under different programmes was promoted. In order to ensure that over time, any judge or prosecutor has access to and can participate in relevant training, sustainability of such programmes and strategic approaches to training are essential. A further challenge is that due to the COVID pandemic, much training is now only available online. For this reason, C-PROC is currently developing a platform for online training that will be put at the disposal to project countries. The aim of this workshop is to review how the sustainability of judicial training on cybercrime and e-evidence can be ensured through strategic approaches to training, networking of trainers and tools such as the online platform for judicial training.
