Published Tuesday, March 19, 2019

This briefing paper summarises a selection of Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) judgments from 2018.

The cases included were chosen because they clarify or advance an aspect of primary of EU law of general interest, or because they address a point of EU law that is relevant to the Brexit/Future Relationship negotiations.

Omitted from the briefing are intra-institutional proceedings, Commission enforcement proceedings, and any other proceedings regarding very detailed and sector-specific EU secondary legislation.

The briefing is organised first by subject area of EU law, and secondly by date of the relevant judgments.  The summaries are in plain language where possible.


Note: because of the volume of case law the CJEU sees, this briefing will be regularly updated when chosen judgments in a given subject area have all been summarised. At this time, the following EU law subject areas have been covered:

  • The Fundamental Freedoms (Capital, Establishment/Services, Goods, Persons & Citizenship)
  • Competition Law and State Aid Law
