From:  350,00

This module focusses on the actions that can be taken before the Court of Justice of the European Union in order to challenge non-compliance with EU law.

About this online course

This is the second module of the three-day course on the legal system of the EU and the most important principles governing the adoption and enforcement of European Union law. The module focusses on the actions that can be taken before the Court of Justice of the European Union in order to challenge non-compliance with EU law.

During this module, you will learn about different situations in which Member States risk breaching EU law. Based on a real case, you will learn how to examine potential breaches of EU law and, through an assessment of different legal factors, how to find optimal solutions to the legal problems that present themselves when Member States or individuals apply EU law.

This module is part of a three-day tutorial. The tutorial is divided into modules to offer you flexibility in adapting it to your needs. If you prefer to attend the other module, you can click on Module 1 or you can attend the full three-day tutorial.
