Day-and-a-half training led by practitioners, academics and EU Court of Justice (CJEU) officials on key issues surrounding the EU Preliminary Ruling Procedure.
This training will be based on practical workshops and framework lectures addressing the instances warranting referral of questions to the CJEU, the practical drafting and formulation of questions, the interpretation and implementation of CJEU’s judgments, and the latter’s views on the best practices in this field. With the assistance of experts, participants will analyse practical cases based on real facts and decide whether questions should be referred to the court, formulate such questions and exchange views on national approaches to the use of the preliminary ruling procedure.
This training will serve as a forum for the exchange of knowledge and best practices between practitioners from across the EU.
