Europen Court of Justice

Court of Justice of the European Union

What’s EU,EU Law and The Court of Justice of the European Union? Article 2 of the TEU reads; The Union is founded on the values of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. These values are common to the Member States in a society in which pluralism, non-discrimination, tolerance, justice, solidarity and equality between women and men prevail. With a well description of Article 2,EU is a family which comes into existence with its member states solidarity to create a better world and higher life standarts for its member’s citizens.Although the headlines usually focus on the disputes and the occasional crisis,moving away from the cameras reveals the EU to be a significant success story.In just half a century,the EU has managed to bring about peace and prosperity to Europe,launcged Europe’s single currency (Euro) and established a borderless ‘single market’ that allows fort he free movement of capital and goods and services.Also the EU has one of the main role to create better sustainable future for the whole world.The EU is unique because the EU is not a federation like the United States or a goverment’s collaboration organization like the United Nations and that makes the EU extraordinary. The countries that make up the EU (EU States) maintain their independence and sovereignty, but combine their sovereignty in order attain a level of power and influence that would not be possible if they went it alone. After a definion of the EU and its unique character,we should focus on our main area for JMC 2018:The Court of the European Court of Justice(CJEU). The Court of the European Court of Justice (CJEU)’s role:ensuring EU law is is interpreted and applied the same in every EU country;ensuring countries and the EU institutions abide by EU law. Every system must provide its existence under the independent authority.For this reason The Court of Justice of the European Union has a significant character for EU’s existence.The Court of Justice of the European Union’s main aim is ‘’ensuring the uniform application of Union law within the EU Member’s borders’’ like said before. Today,The Court of Justice of the EU is the judicial body of the EU.Its judical work is carrying out on three levels by; (1)the Court of Justice as the highest instance in the Community legal order(Article 253 TFEU) (2)the General Court (Article 254 TFEU) (3)the specialised courts,may be appointed to the General Court to decide on cases in particular areas(Article 257 TFEU) Composition of the Court of the Justice of the European Union is organized with 27 judges and 8 Advocates General,who are appointed ‘by common accord of the Goverments of the Member States’ for a term of six years.The Courts sits in the following possible formations: (i)the full Court with 27 judges (only in impeachment proceedings,disciplinary proceedings and only where extremely important proceeding and matters of precedent are involved (ii)the Grand Chamber with 13 judges (iii)Chambers of five and three judges. Tasks of the CJEU are the highest and the sole judicial authority in matters of EU Law.Its task is to ‘ensure that in the interpretation of Treaty the law is observed’.CJEU’s main areas are interpretation of Union Law,further shaping of Union Law and monitoring the application of Union Law. We as the case directors of The Court of Justice of the EU in JMC 2018 are calling you to experiment the EU’s unique character in the EU’s most unique institution.That’s why we planned to set sight on the popular law area in our case:the Trademark Law in Europe.As you know well before;Trademark Law gets a higher popularity and importance.Law communities highlight the importance of Trademark Law everyday in their works.
