Event Details


The overview and analysis of the case law of the ECJ is particularly useful in the interpretation of provisions of Union law.  This is particularly true in the field of retail financial services, especially in the financial services sector where the provisions are often highly technical thus their interpretation becomes even more important.  Over the years, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has delivered judgments which have reinforced European integration while granting citizens, and in particular consumers, even more extensive rights. Thus, the protection of consumer rights in the case law of the ECJ is being given an increasingly important role.  The objective of this seminar is to examine the effective control that the ECJ exercises on national law in relation to consumer and investor protection in the field of financial services.



Training Objectives


  • To present recent ECJ Jurisprudence on consumer protection in financial services
  • To analyse and exchange ideas on legal issues raised by the ECJ Jurisprudence
