About this online conference
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 a first-time interpretation on certain EU legal instruments;
- for giving new meaning to existing legal rules;
- on adapting or re-examining past jurisprudence.
The program of this new edition will feature a number of key decisions in the field of the Rule of Law, the configuration of the EU legal system, EU procedural law, EU citizenship and fundamental EU law principles and the law governing the EU institutions.
It will also present an analysis of major recent judgements on substantive EU law matters such as free movement of workers, economic and monetary policy, data protection and European civil service law. The program will be completed with a discussion of Court’s most recent rulings in in the various facets of the area of freedom of security and justice (visa, asylum and immigration and judicial cooperation in criminal matters).
The conference will be delivered online (synchronous delivery via ZOOM). Participants will be able to interact with experts through the chat functionality of the ZOOM platform or at the various Q&A periods following each respective presentation.
