First experiences in the cross-border use of the European Certificate of Succession

This is a preview of the lecture that Dr. Paolo Pasqualis will hold in Leipzig on June 26th, 2019  within the European Conference on Mediation in Cross-Border Succession Conflicts:

The first years of experience in the use of the European Certificate of Succession (ECS) have already provided examples of  the most relevant issues faced by courts and professionals. Beyond the cases already addressed and decided by the Court of Justice of the EU, there are numerous practical examples of how the use of the certificate has met effective solutions through the intervention of the professionals who have dealt with it.

Now, thanks to the solutions given by the Court of Justice and the experience of practitioners, the challenge is to develop a common reading, interpretation and application of the European rules, very often still influenced by those existing in the different national legal systems.

The European Conference on Mediation in Cross-Border Succession Conflicts is a possibility for mediators and jurists to get in contact and exchange experience in the field of succession conflicts. It also provides a venue for giving and receiving constructive feedback on research in progress, networking and discussions for the advancement of mediation across Europe.
