About Us


Welcome to the eucrim website. Eucrim is an online platform that serves as a Europe-wide forum for European criminal and "criministrative" law and intends to encourage discussion among both practitioners and academics. It is addressed to the "pénalistes européens/européennes", to the Members of the Associations of Lawyers of European Criminal Law and the Associations for the Protection of the EU's Financial Interests, as well as all interested parties.
