THE European Commission is working to improve access to justice for its citizens with a survey into the spread of community law.
It is trying to ensure that laws passed by the European Parliament are enforced in member states.
The survey has been welcomed by Patrick Oliver of the Law Society's Brussels office, who says: "This is an interesting push for access to justice and one which we have been lobbying for and working on for the past 12 months.
"The launch of the commission survey on dissemination and training is an important step."
Community law touches on areas such as social security, sex discrimination, employment, as well as competition.
"We are convinced that in the long run the commission's plans will be of immense benefit to Europe's citizens who will become more aware of their rights under community law. We would encourage lawyers, judges and professors to complete the questionnaire and return it to the commission."
The survey, conducted by Gallup, must be returned by 30 November.
