Abstract

In 2010 the Council of the European Union laid down the standard for the European Case Law Identifier (ECLI). In this paper we assess to what extent and how ECLI has been implemented by national and European courts, as well as the state of play regarding the ECLI search engine on the European e-Justice Portal. With a lot of work to be done, the ongoing developments justify a positive outlook.
