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 regarded as significant for:
- They offer a first-time interpretation on certain EU legal instruments;
- They give a new meaning to existing legal rules;
- Or they adapt or re-examine past jurisprudence.
The program of this new edition will feature a number of key decisions in the field of the Rule of Law, the EU legal system and procedural law and on the application and interpretation of fundamental EU law principles.
It will also present an analysis of major recent judgements on substantive EU law matters such economic and monetary policy, employment and social affairs, taxation and competition. The program will then move on to discuss Court’s key rulings in external relations and the area of freedom of security and justice. The conference will conclude with a description of how the Court and its work adapted to the particular contingencies of the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
The conference will be delivered online by means of live streaming days via Zoom.
The various sessions proposed by the conference will be conducted by experts providing presentations on key topics. All sessions will be followed by Q&A sessions allowing for the exchange of ideas, and discussion time where participants will have the opportunity to share professional experiences.
