Enforcement – Exercise 2

Page: 123 Chapter: Part 5, F. 2.

Suggested solution:

Enforcement of EU law in general is based on the cooperation of national courts and the ECJ. This is particularly evident in the preliminary ruling procedure, where the ECJ answers questions put to it by the national court and necessary to this court for dealing with a matter before it. Further, certain important elements are entirely within the remit of the national courts. For example, the direct effect of a provision of EU law must be relied on before a national court. Further, Member State liability is a matter to be brought before a national court. In fact, it may be said that all national courts are Union courts of general jurisdiction.
