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).
