This paper considers the most important changes brought by the Treaty of Lisbon to the functioning of the Court of Justice of the European Union. These changes concern the internal organisation of the institution, the appointment of its members and the extension of its jurisdiction in the areas of freedom, security and justice, foreign and security policy, as well as its new power to protect fundamental rights.
 

The paper is written in French, prefaced by a two-page synopsis in English.

Sébastien Brisard is rapporteur at the National Court of Asylum in France and a former administrator at the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg.
