Yearly selection of major judgments
The Selection of major judgments is a new annual publication which is intended to make the case-law of the Courts of the European Union more visible and accessible. It contains a collection of résumés of the main decisions of the Court of Justice and the General Court of the European Union, produced by the Research and Documentation Directorate.
As part of a new approach to disseminating case-law, the Selection of major judgments is designed to meet the new requirements of communication on court activity and highlights, for legal professionals, the main developments in case-law over the past year.
Based on a selection of decisions by the Court of Justice and the General Court, this edition provides a summary analysis of the main developments in case-law over the last year. Those developments are presented in the form of the aforementioned summaries, grouped by subject matter and inspired by the structure of the Treaties of the European Union. For each résumé, a hyperlink is provided to the text of the decision.
The Selection of major judgments, which is available in its entirety in digital format, was designed from the outset as a tool for use within a digital context, as part of the Institution’s policy of digitalisation.
