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.

importance of Trademark Law everyday in their works. Before you apply to the

new inspiring law perspective of the Trademark Law.We hope to see our judges
