This year the YEA Training Seminar took place on 15 and 16 November in Brussels at the European Commission.
Around 60 legal experts from all EU Member States attended the training, during which they were informed of the latest developments in EU law, as well as current challenges. Topics mainly concerned free movement rights EU citizens and their family members, social security benefits and healthcare, the state of Schengen, and the internal market. Experts had the opportunity to participate, share common challenges and best practices with the speakers.
The seminar included a special session on Brexit, post-withdrawal scenarios and implications of the withdrawal agreement on EU and UK citizens’ rights by EU Rights Clinic Supervising Solicitor Anthony Valcke.
