Overview

The New EU Judiciary is the first book that offers a timely and thorough assessment of recent and ongoing changes to the operation of the European Union (EU) Judiciary, and it reflects on the future shape of the EU judicial system. The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has started to implement what is arguably the most significant set of reforms since the Nice Treaty, with notably the doubling of the number of judges at the General Court and the disappearance of the Civil Service Tribunal. Controversies surrounding the process and outcomes of the reforms called for a broader reflection on the changing role of the European Courts and the way they cope with old and new challenges. To this end, this book brings together junior and seasoned academics and practitioners to take stock of the various aspects of the reforms of the EU Judiciary and its overall functioning, from ‘comparative’, ‘insider’, and ‘outsider’ perspectives.

What’s in this book:
Broadening and deepening our understanding of the reorganisation of the EU Judiciary, the contributors offer incisive analyses of reforms and transformations, including:

  • a critical appraisal of the reform process and the role and powers of the CJEU;
  • implications of the reforms for the Court of Justice and the General Court;
  • lessons from the practice of the now dismantled Civil Service Tribunal;
  • a reflection on the future Unified Patent Court;
  • an evaluation of the role of the CJEU’s members and staffs and their selection;
  • insiders’ perspectives into the workings of some repeat players (Legal Services of the European Commission, the European Parliament, and the parties’ lawyers);
  • an assessment of the procedural reforms before the Court of Justice and the General Court with a specific focus on the urgent preliminary procedure (known as PPU);
  • the unfolding and impact of the digital revolution (e-Curia) on the CJEU;
  • the challenges of the languages regime and legal reasoning before the CJEU.


How this will help you:

As a timely assessment of the effects of recent reforms on the EU Courts’ decision-making practices, roles, and identities, and more broadly on the legitimacy of the EU and its institutions as a whole, this book is unparalleled. This book will be of great value to practitioners engaged in EU litigation, scholars of European law and policymakers at EU institutions, and all those interested in judicial process and reform.
