This session will provide the opportunity to present the access to justice hurdles in Spain, Estonia, Germany and France, as well as to share national best practices and possible recommendations. Thanks to our European project on access to justice, and especially our seminars, we gathered experiences of various legal professionals and thus gained a comprehensive understanding of the access to justice state of play in these jurisdictions.
