EU Law Resources Online – How to Get the Info You Need

This online course offers a comprehensive and structured guide to a wide range of internet resources, both free and commercial, focused on EU issues. It trains you in their proficient use, enabling you to quickly and efficiently retrieve the EU information you need.

About this course

The official website of the European Union (www.europa.eu) is the biggest digital portal on the net. It is also the point of entry to an immense plethora of digital resources for professionals working with the EU, economic operators who want to pursue business in the EU, citizens and consumers living and working in the EU and academics and scholars researching about the EU. Moreover, a countless number of other websites, both free and commercial, has flourished over the years, further augmenting the available information.

This hands-on, practical and interactive online course aims to provide you with a chart on the most useful and practical EU information resources, and demonstrate you which tools to use to quickly obtain official documents, publications, statistics, open data and legal information about the EU, how to participate in EU consultations and express your interests in the EU legislative process.

What will you learn:

Thanks to this online course, you will learn how to find quickly and efficiently:

  • policy initiatives, legislative proposals and work programmes;
  • legislation, case law and summaries of legislation;
  • policy papers and press releases;
  • contact information, ‘who’s who’ and ‘who’s doing what’ in the EU.

Course methodology/highlights:

The webinar will feature a number of content sessions conducted by experts who will offer demonstrations of the most useful websites and databases. All these sessions will be followed by Q&A periods where participants will have the possibility to formulate questions and share professional experiences.

Moreover, the webinar will also feature a final interactive session devoted to the resolution of practical ‘search’ exercises, which will allow participants to develop hands-on expertise by exploring the websites themselves under the experts’ guidance.

Extensive training and support material such as presentations, guideline documents, audio visual material, will be provided to participants via the course’s online platform.

By the end of the course, you will have acquired:

  • a toolbox for finding EU targeted information;
  • a good knowledge of the key EU information sources and search techniques;
