A Guide to the Right to Information Directive

November 24, 2014

Rebecca newThis online training module looks at the Right to Information in Criminal Proceedings Directive. The Directive, which was adopted in May 2012, is a key piece of EU legislation and has the potential to be an effective tool for protecting basic fair trial rights. It essentially requires that all suspects and accused persons receive basic information about their rights, information about reasons for arrest and charges, and access to the case materials in order to prepare a defence.  This training is targeted at criminal defence practitioners and aims to provide an overview of the goals of the Directive, examine the Directive’s transposition into national law in several jurisdictions, as well as provide skills to enable use of the Directive in everyday criminal practice.
