C-Law's Board of Directors has adopted resolution on setting up an "Expert Group 10+"
The mission of C-Law is to contribute to the improvement of legislation and legal practice in the areas of commercial and company law, as well as to promote standards of best practice in corporate governance with a particular emphasis on new Member States of the European Union and Short-listed Membership Candidates.
C-Law.org was created to restore balance in the debate about the future harmonization and development of company and commercial law in Europe, and to augment the audibility of Central and Eastern European, or New Member States' voices therein. The European Commission legislative procedures require wide consultancy before issuing directives and regulations. We would like to open a path into this discussion for Eastern and Central Europe, and to create a strong and influential organization with regional and European significance.
To facilitate and institutionalise such an activity, I believe it would be advisable to set up an Expert Group within C-Law, to take part in the discussion and to jointly take positions on different policy issues in the European Union and beyond.
One ad hoc expert group has already been created for the purpose of submitting to the European Commission the position on the proposal of the European Private Company.
As for the future an expert group shall be established to act on permanent basis, although not necessarily with a constant members' composition.
The general working rules of the Expert Group 10+ are as follows:
