The Jean Monnet Module Reshaping Education for Tomorrow’s European Lawyers (RETEL) aims at fostering innovation in educating lawyers in the European Union.

The recipients of the initiatives carried out by the Module are intended to successfully carry their competence for ever-increasing technological environment developing in the European internal market. In particular, given the challenges the EU is facing because of the rise of increasingly competitive technological environments, it is fundamental to train professionals, experts, and citizens on affordable, high-quality, innovative solutions. Europe is at the forefront of blockchain and technological innovation, although much work has to be done in the forthcoming years to remove the obstacles to entrepreneurial initiatives.

The RETEL’s core mission is to promote a truly European legal education to target the challenges posed by the rise of technology to the European legal profession.
