CCBE meeting with the Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) in Vienna

On 1 March 2019, CCBE Vice-President James MacGuill, together with representatives from the CCBE Criminal Law Committee and IT Law Committee, met with representatives from the Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA).  This meeting followed previous meetings in 2017 and 2018 and covered a broad range of topics, including access to a lawyer and the European Arrest Warrant, detention,  the FRA’s work on the Charter of Fundamental Rights (including the Guidance on how to use the Charter of Fundamental Rights) and Charterpedia (Charterpedia is an online tool which provides easily accesible information on the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union), business and human rights/collective redress, and DATA and Artificial intelligence. The meeting was extremely informative and the CCBE appreciates the wonderful cooperation which exists between both organisations.
