This chapter examines the development of the Court of First Instance (CFI) over the last 18 years, and offers some thoughts as to the possible evolution of its role. It argues that the role of the CFI will in practice be determined by the willingness of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) to take the necessary steps to enable the Court of Justice, as an institution, to evolve in order better to deal with present and future challenges. Only bold initiatives and farsightedness will give the ECJ, and all the other courts within the new judicial architecture, a real chance to significantly reduce delays and improve their service for the users of the courts — both national judges and litigants alike — while maintaining the high standards that are rightly expected by Europe, its institutions and its citizens.

Keywords:   EU, CFI, Court of Justice, ECJ
