Legal professionals aim at offering their clients the best at all times. Sound knowledge of recent developments in the legal areas in which they have specialized is hence indispensable. The CPO offers high quality training with ample attention for topicality. In order to guarantee a strong focus on the practice, a large part of our teachers and trainers are practicing lawyers. At the same time, legal developments are standardly analyzed on the basis of the relevant academic theory, as the CPO develops training programmes in close collaboration with scholars from, inter alia, the Radboud University, of which it is part. The balanced combination of scholarship and practice enables participants to elaborate on the reasons behind current legal developments while being able to immediately apply what they have learnt in their daily practices.
