The opening ceremony was attended by the first vice president and regional minister of Finance and Public Administration, Pilar Blanco-Morales Limones, who explained that numerous opinions of the advisory council of judges encourage “the judiciary to interact with society”.
She also referred to the ruling “Justice and Society” because it mandates the Councils of Justice to “to encourage the participation of judges in all training activities, because judges must follow developments in law not only in theory but also in practice”.
The director of the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation, Juan Carlos Moreno Piñero, in turn, claimed that with this course “a new scenario of training, sharing and reflection of professionals of the law is inaugurated”. Moreno Piñero stated that “Law is not an exact science but it is a rigorous science and we certainly want to contribute to that rigour”.
The president of the Superior Court of Justice of Extremadura, María Félix Tena Aragón, highlighted the importance of advancing the study of Agrarian and Livestock Law in our region as “it makes up 90 percent of civil and criminal matters of the rural courts”.
In this sense, the president recalled that matters of spatial planning, environmental crimes, CAP claims and temporary contracts, among other matters, have to do with this type of Law.
Tena Aragón stressed that this forum for debate and research has been possible thanks to institutional collaboration and that “it emerges with the vocation of putting agrarian and livestock Law and rural Spain on the map”.
Also speaking at the opening was the member of the General Council of the Judiciary, Juan Martínez Moya, who stressed the importance of the agreement signed between the General Council of the Judiciary and the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation, whose first formative activity materialises in this course, bringing closer and interrelating the legal field to civil society as the European Advisory Council pointed out in several of its rulings.
He also informed the participants of the union of the General Council of the Judiciary with Ibero-America through the Ibero-American Legal Summit in which 23 judiciaries participate and whose interest unites them in turn to Yuste Foundation.
The programme counts with the participation of jurists, academics, notaries and registrars and the Administration, such as Julián Mora Aliseda, professor of Spatial Planning and Environmental Sustainability Policies, Eduardo de Porres Ortiz de Urbina, magistrate of the Supreme Court or Sandra Pacheco Maya, general director of Labour of the Regional Government of Extremadura.
During the course, topics such as the formalities and consequences of the declaration of the SPA Area, contracts related to CAP rights, new labour regulations affecting temporary agricultural-livestock contracts or environmental crime in agriculture will be discussed.
The member of the General Council of the Judiciary, Pilar Sepulúlveda García de la Torre, will be in charge of closing the course on the 15th of March.
