The Rule of Law – a view from the UK and the EU

Oplæg på engelsk v/generaladvokat Eleanor Sharpston.

The Rule of Law is one of the (almost invisible) foundations of a civilised society. But what, actually, do we mean by that phrase? What are its underpinnings, it preconditions, its parameters? 

The presentation will draw on recent case law of the CJEU and the UK Supreme Court to start to answer those questions.
