Academy of European Law organizes the seminar
Better Understanding the Role of the European Court of Justice in Criminal Matters
29 february – 1 march 2016
Since 1 December 2014, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has full competence for the legal instruments adopted in the area of EU criminal justice. It is now competent for the preliminary ruling procedure, independent from a formal declaration by the Member State. The infringement procedure, the action for compensation and the action for failure to act are also available in criminal matters.
This seminar aims to prepare EU criminal legal practitioners for the new full jurisdiction of the Court in criminal matters, enabling a consistent and uniform application of EU law in line with the most recent procedure and recommendations.
The seminar will include a visit to the CJEU, including attendance at a hearing.
– Direct and indirect actions before the CJEU in criminal matters
– The preliminary ruling procedure, including urgent and expedited procedures
– Remedies for acts by OLAF, Europol, and Eurojust
– The case law of the CJEU in criminal matters (European Arrest Warrant, ne bis in idem, victims’ rights)
Who should attend?
Judges, prosecutors and lawyers practising criminal law
