Welcome to the webpage of the Committee on Legal Affairs.
 
 

Ubi societas, ibi ius; ubi ius, ibi societas
 
 
The Committee, otherwise known by its French acronym "JURI", is closely involved in helping citizens in their daily lives across the Union, through its responsibility for legislation in the field of civil law and private international law. As the Committee responsible for company law, it is also at the forefront of making life easier for businesses trading in the internal market. Competitiveness is also at the heart of our preoccupations, in particular through the big debate currently taking place on the protection of intellectual and industrial property.
 
The Committee is also responsible for the law governing the Union's administration and for parliamentary law, which includes the Statute for Members of the European Parliament, parliamentary immunity and the verification of Members' credentials after their election.
 
This Committee also has a highly specialised role as the legal adviser of Parliament on a certain number of horizontal questions: the legal basis of Union acts, implementing and delegated acts, and subsidiarity and disputes involving Parliament. Raising awareness within Parliament of the better lawmaking and simplification challenges is also one of the Committee's key concerns.
 
I hope that you will find this webpage helpful and informative.
 
Yours sincerely,
 

Klaus-Heiner Lehne, Chairman
