Disability rights lawyers got training in Trier
In November, Funka’s Susanna Laurin was invited to present on accessibility and public procurement legislation at the Academy of European Law in Trier, Germany. The session was part of a two day seminar on EU Disability Law and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
It is always a pleasure to meet a new audience, says Susanna Laurin, CEO at Funka. It was truly rewarding to meet these engaged lawyers from all corners of Europe and discuss progress and challenges.
The aim of the seminar was to provide participants with the necessary knowledge and legal tools to use the UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), combined with relevant EU law in their daily practice. The event was open to National civil servants and staff of non-profit organisations, disabled persons organisations and equality bodies from all EU Member States.
The Academy of European Law, ERA, arranges courses, seminars and conferences on EU-legislation for a wide range of target groups, including lawyers, EU-staff, national civil servants, judges, prosecutors and journalists.
Parts of the seminar were recorded and the Funka presentation is published on the ERA website.
