Several years ago, the SSR (The Dutch Training and Study Centre for the Judiciary) began a programme to reinforce and deepen knowledge of Community law among the members of the judiciary. Several themes relating to the actual application of European law by members of the National Judiciary in everyday practice are discussed in this work. Attention is focused on the development of the role of members of the national judiciaries regarding the maintenance of Community law, European norms, the consequences of negligence in the application and implementation of Community law, and the future conception of judicial responsibilities.;The aim of this work is to promote an increase of knowledge of European law among the members of the judiciary, and in particular, to heighten their consciousness of the existence and meaning of regulations of European law which are of immediate importance to the national administration of justice. The book stresses that Community law is an important matter for all European countries, and that uniformity, and the legal protection it offers, requires a univocal interpretation and application of the regulations of Community law among all member states.
