Each year, the European Centre for Judges and Lawyers – EIPA Luxembourg hosts a conference on ‘Recent Trends in the Case Law of the Court of Justice of the EU’. The next edition will take place on 18 and 19 January 2024. The hosts have kindly shared the following information with us, which can also be found here.
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.
