Judges and collective redress | 13 November - 4 December 2023

In the context of the EU “Representative Actions Directive” (Directive 2020/1828), which will come into application in June 2023, judges and members of the judiciary will be called upon to undertake important tasks for managing and resolving mass claims. Depending on the national rules transposing the Directive, they may, among other things, be required to assess the admissibility and merits of the actions, to ensure that consumers are appropriately represented and informed and to verify that the interests of all represented parties are well-protected. The objective of the online webinar series “Judges & Collective Redress” is to raise awareness on collective redress and to exchange on the roles of judges in collective redress actions.
