Clinical project

While we intend to engage into several transparency initiatives, our first clinical project aimed at promoting transparency in the EU will focus on the selection of European Court’s judges.

Action : The Clinic submitted a request for access to documents to the Council – who holds the opinions delivered by Article 255 TFEU’s Committee about the suitability of the candidate put forward by the Member States to the judicial office.

As our request has been unsurprisingly rejected, we may complain to the EU Ombudsman against the Council.

Partners : While we intend to take the lead of this project, we welcome the opportunity to engage and exchange with other organizations interested in promoting more judicial openness.
