The European Court of Justice - the EU's highest court - enforces EU law throughout all member states. This section explores its influence, debates its relevance and looks to increase understanding over what its role could be post Brexit.
There have been thousands of cases that the ECJ has ruled on over its 65 years in operation. Its cases have ranged from those that concern the movement and sale of goods to rules on competition and free movement of people. Not all cases have involved the United Kingdom, however, given the law is for every member state, the judgements made by the court involving other parities have also influenced the UK, its legal system and economy.
