Dissecting the System for Selecting Judges at the Court of Justice of the European Union

Selecting Europe's Judges

This chapter examines the new system for selecting judges to the EU courts, comprising both the 255 Panel and the CST Committee. It first enquires into staffing issues, reviewing the ‘selection of selectors’. Next, it takes a look at the varying methods for pre-selecting (potential) candidates for appointment to the EU courts at the national level. The chapter then proceeds to analyse the system’s ordinary functioning, after which it turns the focus on its place within the broader institutional architecture. Lastly, it highlights the experiences of the system’s first years of operation, before it wraps up with some concluding reflections.
