The core group (the Principal Investigator, prof. van Rhee and prof. Silvestri) participated in the meeting of the ELI working group on obligations of parties, judges and lawyers in Colegio Borromeo, Pavia from 11 to 12 February 2016. The meeting was coorganized by Universita degli studi di Pavia.
During the meeting, the working group continued their work on the drafting on the common European rules of civil procedure in regard to the obligations of parties and parties' representatives. The result was second draft of the Rules. This draft will be presented in Rome at April Steering Committee and Co-Reporters Joint Meeting. The working group also decided to hold the next meeting in Dubrovnik on 26-27 May, where explanatory comments to rules will be discussed. It was also decided to hold in principle another meeting in Paris, for the discussion of the French translation.
