Welcome to the Central EU Law Blog for Students!
This blog is serving as a virtual meeting point for law students to interact and exchange their perspectives upon topical issues of EU law and upon their respective national legal orders. It is intended for students of all levels of studies and from around the globe. While posts in English are preferred, posts in other languages are also encouraged. We also encourage posts with short news concerning important legal developments, from EU and ECtHR judgments to developments concerning other EU institutions and national developments.
