The European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice

European Day of Civil Justice

25 October 2009



The  Austrian Contact Points intend to visit or invite various schools in Vienna and other important Austrian cities in order to inform pupils and their teachers about Civil Justice and its significance in everyday’s life of any of us. This should be achieved by practical examples, lectures and discussions. Some of the events will be attended by the press.

The main objective is to bring knowledge of the legal system and its institutions to the mind of the younger generation who will form the Austrian society during the next years and decades.
