Abstract

The paper examines the right to fair trial in the context of the judicial review of competition authority decisions. It briefly presents the general models of judicial review and analyses the recent jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union. The paper argues that although the reader of the recent jurisprudence on the standard of review may easily get the impression that it is no exaggeration to speak about a revolution in Europe, when taking a closer look at the case law, it becomes clear that it is very far from a qualitative change taking the form of a leap.

Keywords: Competition law, Competition procedure, deferentialism, judicial review, right to a fair trial
