Notes and studies

This section provides access to documents, notes and studies of a scientific, analytical or educational nature drawn up and selected by the Court of Justice of the European Union and by the member courts of the RJUE, in order to enhance mutual knowledge of national laws.

‘Research notes’ are the result of research carried out or requested by the Court of Justice of the European Union or by a member court of the RJUE for the purpose of its activities. That in-depth research, which may relate to a specific legal question or a particular subject, is intended to feed into the work of the courts. Research notes are also often drafted from a deliberately comparative perspective.

The Court of Justice of the European Union shares within that framework the ‘research notes’ compiled by its Research and Documentation Directorate, which are drawn up in French and accompanied by a summary that is also available in English.

The list of these notes and studies is at the bottom of the page. They may also be searched via the search bar.
