Since 1 December 2014, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has full competence for the legal instruments adopted in the area of EU criminal justice. It is now competent for the preliminary ruling procedure, independent from a formal declaration by the Member State. The infringement procedure, the action for compensation and the action for failure to act are also available in criminal matters. 

This seminar aims to prepare EU criminal legal practitioners for the new full jurisdiction of the Court in criminal matters, enabling a consistent and uniform application of EU law in line with the most recent procedure and recommendations.
The seminar will include a visit to the CJEU, including attendance at a hearing.
