Seminar on the Reform of the Court of Justice of the European Union: Structural reforms and new patterns of management, 14 May 2012

Organised by the Institut d’Etudes Européennes de l’Université libre de Bruxelles and the Trans European Policy Studies Association (TEPSA), from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Spaak room, Institute of European Studies – ULB, 39, Avenue Franklin Roosevelt, 1050 Brussels, Belgium.

The reform of the Court of Justice of the European Union is a recurrent issue. Successive revisions of the Treaties and the Rules of Procedure reforms attempted over time to solve the problems posed by the gradual increase of the number of cases. Today the increasing number of members of the Tribunal is being considered. It seems that the time has come to resume discussions on this subject. It must be especially assessed whether structural reforms are the only possible answers. There has been little discussion on possible solutions for future reform of the management of the Court.The work will be introduced by the presentations of Professors Franklin Dehousse, Judge of the Court, and Jean-Victor Louis and followed by discussions with a panel of practitioners and academics.

The seminar addresses all academics, practitioners and students. Please note that the working language of the seminar will be French. Registration is required through the online form via this link:
