As the energy transition unfolds and the Green Deal initiatives take off, the role of the Court of Justice of the European Union is likely to become increasingly significant – whether by way of their involvement in direct appeals in institutional matters, as well as against Commission competition and state aid decisions – or by way of the ECJ’s rulings on requests for preliminary rulings from national courts.
The FSR European Union Law Area provides a regular platform to single out and examine major trends in the case law with a six-month update on new case law from both the General Court and the Court of Justice as well as to shine a spotlight on important pending cases.
For this event we are joined by Adrien de Hauteclocque from the FSR and the General Court, and Matthew Levitt, partner at Baker Botts LLP, Brussels. The FSR EU Law Area Director, Leigh Hancher will chair and contribute as a speaker to the event.
