ERA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME ERA offers scholarships to legal practitioners from the Western Balkans, Moldova and Ukraine


For more than 30 years the Academy of European Law (ERA) has been bringing together lawyers, judges, in-house counsel and other legal practitioners from all across Europe for training in European law.

ERA runs a scholarship programme to ensure that all legal practitioners from EU Member States and candidate countries have the same opportunity to participate in professional training on European law.

ERA is now inviting applications for scholarships as a priority  from the Western Balkan countries – Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia – as well as Moldova and Ukraine.

The scholarship can cover up to the full costs of participation in any of ERA’s programmes. Please visit our website to view Summer Courses 2023 and other upcoming events in 2023.

Applications must be submitted at the latest two months (for face-to-face events) or one month (for online events) before the conference.

Feel free to share this information with your network or encourage friends and colleagues to contact us directly to be added to our mailing list so that more practitioners of law can benefit from ERA’s training programme.
