Information on judicial vacations

Periods during which hearings are not held

In accordance with Article 15 of the Protocol on the Statute of the Court of Justice, the Court is to remain permanently in session.  Each Court determines the periods of judicial vacation and the periods during which, as a rule, no hearings will be held.

Nevertheless, the Courts and their services continue to operate as normal during those periods, in which hearings can be organised if the circumstances of the case so require.

Thus, for the judicial year 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 hearings will not, as a rule, be held during the following periods :
