Welcome to CCBE | ACTIONS | Committees & Working Groups

Specialist committees and working groups made up of experts appointed by the national delegations discuss and develop policy papers on a wide range of areas affecting the European legal profession.


European Private Law Committee


The committee deals with a wide range of issue, excluding those in the area covered by the Family & Succession Law Committee. It monitors and responds to initiatives/proposals emanating from the European institutions on civil and commercial matters, such as connecting factors (e.g. domicile and nationality), the jurisdiction of the courts, the recognition and enforcement of judgements, choice of law, contract law, as well as more specifically on consumer rights and protection. It also follows the developments taking place at an international level, such as of the HCCH, UNIDROIT, and UNCITRAL.
