About this course

A sophisticated understanding of the procedures of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), the CJEU’s practices and case law is quintessential to successfully litigate before the Court. During the seminar you will learn the insights and actions to be entertained before the Court of Justice of the European Union. Enhance your knowledge on the CJEU, the procedures before the CJEU, its internal rules, language regime, handling of documents, appeals and interim measures.

What will you learn?

  • The online course will focus on the various actions entertained before the Court of Justice of the European Union, analysing the preliminary references coming from national courts and the direct actions before the CJEU, in particular, annulment actions where private parties may challenge EU law.
