Access for EU citizens to topical pages and publications regarding civil and commercial law assistance

How the EJN-civil can help citizens

The EJN-civil facilitates relations between national judicial authorities which in turn benefits people involved in cross-border civil and commercial cases. The EJN-civil helps to improve effective access to justice in the following ways:

- It provides citizens directly with a wide range of information on European, national and international civil and commercial law through pages on specific topics which are available here.

- It has also developed a number of publications, notably for citizens on specific Union law instruments.
