The Secretariat General of the Council receives an application for the post of Judge or Advocate General at the Court of Justice or the General Court of the European Union.
Transfer of the application
The Secretariat General sends it to the President of the panel.
Examination of the dossier
The panel examines the dossier.
It may ask the Government of the country concerned and the candidate to provide additional information on the application.
Interview of the candidate
The candidate is then interviewed for an hour by the members of the panel. In the case of an application for renewal of the mandate of a Judge or Advocate General already in post, the examination is made without interviewing the candidate.
The panel gives a reasoned opinion which is sent to the representatives of the Member States’ Governments.
