Catalogue of case law relating to articles of the EU Birds and Habitats Directives
The online library provides accessible and summarised information on environmental case law relating to the EU Habitats Directive (Articles 1 to 7 and 9 to 16) and the EU Birds Directive (Articles 1 to 9). For further information please refer to the User Guide.
The library includes all relevant cases from courts in the UK and the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) up until March 2019.
In light of the UK’s exit from the EU, the database will no longer be updated. For further information on the reduced ECJ jurisdiction in the UK beyond the transition period ending in December 2020, please see the Withdrawal Agreement or the Library of Commons Explainer.
The Habitats and Birds Directives are retained in law in the UK and therefore the online library of case law continues to be relevant.
