Recent Trends in the Case Law of the Court of Justice of the EU

Our yearly conference will fully immerse you in the most relevant case law of the past year. Uncover key judgments on several policy areas, as well as on the relationship between the EU and national legal orders. Discover aspects of the EU’s digital transition and connect with legal experts, practitioners, and academics in a dynamic networking environment.

About this course

During this annual event, we will bring together leading specialists to review and comment on a number of key judgements that the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) delivered in the past 12 months. The 2024 edition of the ‘Recent Trends in the Case Law of the Court of Justice of the European Union’ will be the occasion to celebrate EIPA’s longstanding contribution to the dissemination, understanding and application of EU law among legal professionals and to shed light on contemporary legal challenges, in particular those stemming from the EU’s digital transition.

As in every year, the conference will encourage interaction and will be an informative and pleasant networking opportunity for all participants. The conference is addressed to academics, legal practitioners from the EU institutions, legal professionals working for the Member States or as advocates, but also judges, lawyers and civil servants coming from candidate countries.

This 2024 edition will feature three panels. The first will discuss some prominent cases on the specific effects of the EU values and the relations between the EU and the national legal orders. The second panel will focus on judgements that shape the action and functioning of the EU in selected and varied policy areas such as competition, consumer protection and restrictive measures. The last panel will be dedicated to decisions that pertain to our 2024 topic: the EU’s digital transition. The variety of fields covered and the expertise of our speakers will provide a clear overview of the most important trends in the recent case law of the CJEU and will lead to informed discussions on contemporary legal questions.

Finally, the 2024 edition of this conference will give the floor to eminent guests to provide insights on the possible interactions between the European Public Prosecutors Office (EPPO) and the CJEU as well as on the specific role of the Advocate Generals of the Court of justice.

The methodology of the conference

The commentaries and analyses of the rulings discussed during the conference will be conducted by prominent specialists in EU law, including Members of the CJEU, the European Chief Prosecutor, EU officials, academics and CJEU legal secretaries.

Each session will be followed by discussions aimed at addressing specific questions and further clarifying key ideas. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange relevant professional experiences during these discussions. Additionally, breaks will offer excellent networking opportunities, allowing legal professionals to socialise and engage on matters related to EU law.

By attending the conference, you will:

  • stay updated on the most recent and crucial judgements of the Court of Justice across various fields of EU law;
  • gain first-class insights into how the selected judgements may impact the development of EU policies and legal practices, not only at the EU level but also nationally;
  • anticipate issues that the Court will likely clarify in future litigation;
  • become part of a network comprising top experts who share their expertise and best practices.

Moreover, by participating in the 2024 edition, you will:

  • acquire further knowledge about specific aspects of the EU’s digital transition, as inferred from the most recent case law of the Court of Justice;
  • Listen to speeches by high-ranking members of the CJEU and the EPPO, benefiting from their insights into several technical yet crucial aspects regarding their respective roles in enforcing EU law, advancing EU policies, legal practice and shaping future case law.
  • legal professionals within the public and private sectors
  • officials of EU institutions and agencies
  • national civil servants working on EU law issues
  • national magistrates and judicial professionals
  • law enforcement officers
  • academics
