Detailed programme available to download here.

This year marks the remarkable 50th anniversary of the London-Leiden Conference on European Law. To mark this occasion, the event will reflect on the impact that the EU legal and regulatory framework has had on the Rule of Law. The maintenance, development and promotion of the rule of law is of fundamental importance for the human dignity and well-being of people everywhere. It provides the foundations for good governance, accountability, certainty and legality which are core conditions for an effective economy and a fair society. This June, the London-Leiden conference will consider issues such as standing under the Treaty of Lisbon, the application of preliminary references by national courts, and procedures in criminal and competition law, in the wider context of the rule of law.
