Practice and Procedure before the European Courts

Wednesday May 24th 16:30 to 19:30 (Registration from 16:00)

Dublin Dispute Resolution Centre, Distillery Building, Church Street, Dublin 7

3 CPD Points (Barristers) or 3 General Points (Solicitors)

EU law now affects the majority of legal subjects and it is increasingly necessary for all lawyers to have a good knowledge of the practice and procedure before the European courts. This evening seminar should be of interest to all litigators, including experienced EU lawyers, newly qualified practitioners and lawyers working in areas traditionally outside the remit of EU law (such as criminal law).  The speakers and chair are some of the Irish lawyers with the greatest level of experience running cases before the European courts.

  • Ciaran Toland SC - Chair
  • John Temple Lang, retired member of the Legal Services of the Commission and Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton - 
  • Leo Flynn, Legal Services of the Commission - Preparing for an oral hearing before the ECJ
  • Noel Travers SC - Practice and procedure in the General Court
  • Margaret Gray BL -  Different procedures in Article 267 TFEU references, including applications for an Oral Hearing and a PPU
