The Court of Justice of the European Union

Judicial authority of the European Union, the Court, created in 1952, is designed to ensure "respect for the law in the interpretation and application" of European texts. This led it to have a protective eye on compliance with European legislation both by national and European authorities. The Court is characterized by the fact that each of the official languages of the Member States of the European Union can be admitted as language of proceedings.

Its activities can be carried out in collaboration with other institutions of the European Union.

The European Court of Human Rights

It is responsible for settling disputes relating to the infringement of the rights under the European Convention of Human Rights or the Additional Protocols. The complaint may be filed by individuals or member States. The number of judges in the Court is the same as the number of States parties (47).

Structure composed of 9 members in addition to the former presidents of the French Republic, who are life members, the Constitutional Council is designed to verify the conformity of domestic and international texts with the French Constitution, the supreme text. The «wise men » exercise, also other functions, such as the control of the regularity of national consultations, referendums and elections. The Constitutional Council stands, therefore, as a true defender of rights and freedoms provided for in the texts of constitutional value.

One student of the Law College is welcomed each year as an intern to the Constitutional Council.


The French State Council


As a supreme administrative court at a national level, the State Council has three main tasks: advises the Government and the legislative authorities with respect to the elaboration and adoption of texts, manages the administrative courts and judges the legality of administrative acts. More generally, the Council ensures the protection of the citizens from abuses or errors that the administration could make.

The State Council welcomes each year for an internship a student of the Law College.


The French Court of Cassation


Supreme Court of the judiciary, the Court of Cassation is to decide disputes on civil, commercial and social or even criminal law.  The Court is characterized by consistency and uniqueness; one of its functions is to interpret the law in a uniform manner. As a result, a proposed solution will be identical throughout the French territory for a similar case. 

The Court welcomes each year for an internship a student of the College of Law.


The Commercial Court of Evry (France)

Original jurisdictions, where the judges are not necessarily jurists but business leaders or professionals of the industry or of the service sector, the commercial courts settle disputes arising from commercial activity.
