The CCBE held its Standing Committee meeting in Brussels on 20 June 2014.
On this occasion, the assembled delegations approved the establishment of the European Lawyers' Foundation in The Hague, Netherlands. The main aim of the Foundation will be to implement added-value projects that create services for European lawyers on issues related to justice in Europe, including projects on human rights and the rule of Law.
The European Chamber of Judicial Officers, the French National Chamber of Bailiffs and the think tank “Institute for the evolution of the legal professions” organised on 26 June at the European Parliament a conference on the subject: “Legal professions in the development of the European digital agenda”. During the second part of the conference, which was dedicated to the presentation of the e-Justice Action Plan 2014-2018, the CCBE Secretary General Jonathan Goldsmith presented the Find-A-Lawyer project.
