All communications with EU courts must now be done digitally, as the e-Curia app goes live this month.
All EU lawyers who exchange procedural documents with the registries of the Court of Justice and the General Court must now use the previously optional e-Curia application.
The app is now the only means of exchange of legal documents between parties’ representatives and the general court.
Any legal representative of a party that does not yet have access to the e-Curia application will need to request the opening of such an account.
This can take some time, the administrators warn, urging affected practitioners to act quickly.
All information on the e-Curia application, and a fully-updated user manual, can be found here.
Lawyer feedback shows general satisfaction with the e-Curia application.
