Abstract

The article examines the practice of the European Court of Justice amidst the formation of general principles of judicial proceedings in the EU. The research methodology includes general scientific and special scientific approaches and methods. In the author’s understanding, the general principles of the EU acquis are the fundamental human rights enshrined in the European Convention of 1950 common to all EU member states. They are the basis of the European legal order in general and the European judicial proceedings in particular. The decisions of the European Court of Justice, which specify the right to a fair trial, effective remedy, independence, and impartiality of the court, etc., are reviewed. The position of the Supreme Court regarding the binding nature to the national judiciary of the principles derived from the decisions of the European Court of Justice is analyzed. Thus, the necessity to deepen Ukrainian judges’ knowledge of the judicial law of the European Union is emphasized.
