Training Seminar on the

“EU Charter of Fundamental Rights”

Six years into the formal integration of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in the Treaties, the application of the Charter at the EU Member States level is having increasing impact. The Charter can be called upon when resorting to the national jurisdictions for legal questions relating to EU Law. How the Court of Justice has interpreted the Charter rights? Is the Charter useful for the legal practitioners facing the national courts or the Court of Justice of the EU?

Training on the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights


The seminar is conceived for all jurists who can be confronted with different case law where EU Law applies, and who can then uphold the rights guaranteed by the Charter against a national law or legal practice. Beyond illustrating the key features of the Court the training seminar will analyze specific case law relevant to issues of Privacy/Data Protection; Internal Market; Asylum and Immigration; Economic and Social Rights.
