Visit to the Court of Justice of the European Communities by a delegation from the United States Supreme Court

Today, the Members of the Court of Justice of the European Communities received an official visit of judges from the Supreme Court of the United States, Mrs Sandra Day O'Connor, Mrs Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Mr Stephen Breyer, accompanied by the United States' Ambassador, Mr Peter Terpeluk.

The programme, which started with a round table discussion with Members of the Court allowed discussion of a variety of topical European issues, in particular the Convention on the Future of Europe and enlargement of the European Union.

In the afternoon, a further meeting with Members of the Court discussed the recent case-law of the Supreme Court of the United States.

At the end of the visit, which occurred in the context of the constant and close relations enjoyed by the Court of Justice and the Supreme Court of the United States, the President of the Court accompanied the delegation to an audience with HRH Grand-Duke Henri at the Grand-Ducal Palace.
