The Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE) represents the bars and law societies of 45 countries, and through them more than 1 million European lawyers. The CCBE responds regularly on behalf of its members on policy issues which affect European citizens and lawyers.
In the current statement the CCBE wishes to provide its views in relation to the Commission proposals for amendment of the regulations on service of documents and the taking of evidence in civil and commercial matters. This initiative is a follow-up to the public consultation on modernisation of judicial cooperation in civil and commercial matters in the EU that was launched in December 2017.
