Event Description

This annual conference reviews and comments on a selected number of judicial decisions issued by the Court of Justice of the European Union during the past 12 months. These judicial decisions are significant in offering an interpretation on:

  • Certain first-time EU legal instruments
  • For giving new meaning to existing legal rules
  • On adapting or re-examining past jurisprudence.

This year, the program features a number of key decisions in the field of the Rule of Law (independence of national judiciaries), the configuration of the EU legal system (vertical effect of directives), EU citizenship and fundamental EU law principles (equality & non-discrimination) and the law governing the EU institutions (access to documents). It also presents an analysis of major recent judgements in a number of selected policy areas such as privacy and data protection, employment and social affairs (protection of workers in the gig economy), financial services (investment protection) and European civil service law. The program is completed with a discussion of Court’s most recent rulings in external relations (competence issues, application of external agreements) and in the various facets of the area of freedom of security and justice (returns directive, unaccompanied minors, extradition).

How will it help you?
By analysing a selection of key rulings from different areas of EU law, the conference will enable you to understand how a number of fundamental decisions rendered by the Court in the course of the preceding months may potentially impact the legal development of the EU. Beyond the specific details of each case, the conference will also strive to identify general legal trends as well as potential directions for the future evolution of the Court’s case-law.

Who will benefit most?

  • Legal professionals within the public and private sectors
  • Officials of EU institutions and agencies
  • National civil servants and persons working on EU law issues
  • Judicial professionals
  • Law enforcement officers
  • Academics
  • Others who are interested in EU legal issues in general, and in the main rulings delivered by the European Courts in particular.
