The Court of Justice of the European Union

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has invited nominations for 14 judges and 5 Advocates-General as their terms are due to expire next year, including that of a UK-nominated judge. Therefore, the UK has been asked to nominate a judge to the CJEU.

Judge Christopher Vajda, who has been in post at the CJEU since October 2012, has been selected for reappointment by the UK following the UK’s usual process for judicial nominations to the CJEU.

The proposed candidates will be appointed by common accord of the Member States next year.

While we continue to be a Member State, we will honour our rights and obligations, this includes nominating a judge to the Court of Justice.
