The new special stamp commemorates 70 years of the Court of Justice of the Europen Union

The Court of Justice of the European Union, which was established in 1952 in Luxembourg, is the judicial body of the EU, responsible for ensuring the application of EU law across all its member states.

It consists of two courts: the Court of Justice, which has a judge for each of the 27 member states, and the General Court, which was established in 1988 and has 54 judges (two for each member state).

More than 42,000 judgements have been delivered by the institution since 1952.

Each member state of the EU has its own languages (there are currently 24 official EU languages) and specific legal system.

The buildings housing the Court of Justice in the European Union have been housed in Kirchberg since 1973.

The new special stamp, which has a value of €1.40, shows the Publications and Electronic Media Unit of the Court of Justice of the European Union.
