On 25-26 February 2019, the last joint meeting of the Steering Committee, the overarching Working Group on Structure, the co-reporters of the other working groups and the institutional observers of the ELI-Unidroit project on European Rules of Civil Procedure took place in Rome.

Xandra Kramer presented the progress of the WG on Structure and the new consolidated draft rules, followed by a fruitful discussion between the present members of the working group and the participants. The latest drafts of the three last ongoing working groups were also presented and discussed.

The consolidated draft will be completed this year and is scheduled for adoption early next year. The ELI-Unidroit European Rules of Civil Procedure will be a model law on civil procedure for Europe.
