Recent Trends in the Case Law of the Court of Justice of the European Union

2 day(s)


By analysing a selection of key rulings from different areas of EU law, the conference will attempt to identify the general trends as well as potential directions for the future evolution of the Court’s case law and its impact on the legal development of the EU.


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 programme features a number of key decisions in the fields of EU citizenship, fundamental EU law principles (equality & non-discrimination) and the law governing the EU institutions (European citizen’s initiative). It also presents an analysis of major recent decisions in the field of the internal market (regulatory strategy & free movement of services) and in a selected number of policy areas: environment (access to justice), economic and monetary policy (banking supervision), competition and European civil service law. The programme is completed with a discussion of Court’s most recent doctrine and rulings in external relations (competence issues; restrictive measures) and in the various facets of the area of freedom of security and justice, such as asylum (relocation mechanism) and family law (child abduction).
