Court of Justice of the European Union Simulation

The aim of the workshop is to provide students with an overview of the functioning behind a trial in front of the European Court of Justice. After a theoretical introduction on the EUCJ, the students will be divided into three groups, representing respectively the Member State, the Commission, and the Court of Justice. The simulation will reproduce the phases of an action for non-compliance and the participants will have to study the case together and come to the conclusions to be presented later at trial. The final phase of the workshop will focus on an expert’s evaluation of the outcome of the case and its outcomes.
