The project aimed at training member states judges, apprentice judges and lawyers in EU competition law. The seminars and the conference organized within the project aimed at providing the basics of EU competition law, but also to involve participants in the solution of most complex cases of application of EU competition law. A special attention was dedicated to antitrust damage actions, as governed by EU Directive no. 104/2014, on certain rules governing actions for damages under national law for infringements of the competition law provisions of the Member States and of the European Union. This instrument raises inter alia several procedural questions regarding private antitrust enforcement, such as the access to evidence, quantification of damage, jurisdiction and applicable law before national courts. RGSL participation in the project activities was coordinated with the Judicial Training Institute, and a delegation of 8 Latvian judges participated in the final conference of the project.
