The EU judicial system and enforcement of EU law

Secondly, it describes the structure and competences of the CJEU. Finally, it provides a detailed and practical account of the various procedures which may be brought before the Court of Justice of the European Union by EU institutions, Member States, and natural and legal persons to contest the legality of EU action, to prosecute an alleged breach of EU law by a Member State or to interrogate the Court about the meaning of an EU law provision.

What you will learn in this course

Private individuals, professionals of companies and the non-governmental sector, and civil servants (of both Member States and candidate countries) are obliged to deal with various entities or organs of the EU administration and go through a plethora of EU documents in the accomplishment of their routine professional tasks (legal approximation efforts, participation in EU projects, EU funding, litigation, etc.).

This online tutorial aims at providing these professionals with a clear overview of the EU, its structure, regulatory competences and internal procedures. It will also help them to navigate through the jungle of various legal acts that are adopted at the EU level and to gain confidence when reading and analysing EU law-related documents. In addition, they will receive a systematised knowledge of the EU decision-making process and become familiar with different ways of challenging breaches of EU law before the Court of Justice of the EU.
