Court of Justice of the EU / Cour de justice de l’UE

The judicial branch of the European Union. The court mainly deals with application and interpretation of EU law, resolves cases between national governments and EU institutions, and may take action against EU institutions on behalf of individuals, companies or organisations.

NOTE: This is not connected in any way with the European Court of Human Rights. The ECHR is part of the Council of Europe, not the European Union. These are totally separate organisations.
