Pleading for European Comparative Administrative Law
Abstract:This article pleads for reinforced communication and exchange between European and national courts, both in a vertical way, from the national to the European courts, and in a horizontal one, among national courts from different Member States. Building an integrated legal order needs a lot of communication and exchange between the constituent parts, quite more than is presently seen in the European Union. Courts at all levels will greatly benefit from knowing the case law from different jurisdictions which in the end are charged with the application of the same European rules. The barriers due to the specific legal traditions now separating different legal orders could be lowered thanks to a better mutual knowledge and understanding, making a shared European legal culture possible.
