Directory of case-law

In this section, you can find the judgments and orders of the Court of Justice, General Court and Civil Service Tribunal classified by subject in accordance with the classification scheme of the Directory of case-law.

Following the changes brought by the Treaty of Lisbon, the classification scheme – used to analyse case-law from 1954 to 2009 – was modified.

The new scheme has been applicable since 2010.

How to search in this section?

By default, EUR-Lex displays the classification scheme that has been applicable since 2010. It consists of 9 main domains and several subdomains and gives access to the cases published from 2010.

To access the cases published up to 2009, click ‘Go to the classification scheme in place before the Lisbon Treaty (up to 2009)’.

To display all case-law (both classification schemes), select the check box ‘Show cases from both classification schemes’.
