Judges saving Judges

After many years of political debates on the rule of law in the European Union, mark 24 June 2019 as a key date. On that day the European Court of Justice will judge on the retirement of Poland’s Supreme Court judges. The Union’s highest Court will provide its weight and ultimate legal authority on one of the high-profile cases where a member state government is accused by many to undermine the third branch of power. Democracy Reporting International and Verfassungsblog are hosting this online symposium on the upcoming decision discussing the range of options the Court has in deciding on this matter, including its own position with regard to national judiciaries and the competence order of the EU.
