The focus of the meeting was on finalizing and discussing the draft templates on the choice of court and choice of applicable law, as well as on evaluation of the outcome of the national reports. The latter constitute a crucial part of this Project, submitted by eminent experts in the field of family law and private international law from all 28 EU Member States.
The meeting of the Working Team with the Advisory Committee precedes the Public Workshop “Choice of law and choice of court for family related disputes” of the ELI Project “Empowering European Families: Choice of Court and Choice of Law and Submission to Family Mediation”, which will be held on 14 June in Vienna. The aim of the Workshop is to present and discuss interim results of the ongoing Project. Distinguished experts will address current legal developments at the EU level and provide a critical analysis on the applicable law of divorce and legal separation as well as of property relations, maintenance and pension rights.
