Court of Justice of the European Union
European Union law.
The Court of Justice of the European Union interprets EU law to make sure it is applied in the same way in all EU countries, and settles legal disputes between national governments and EU institutions.
It can also, in certain circumstances, be used by individuals, companies or other organisations to take action against an EU institution, if they feel it has infringed their legal rights.
The CJEU consists of:
- The Court of Justice (also known as the European Court of Justice) and
- The General Court.
