The Study focuses on the influence of national civil procedure on the free circulation of judgments and the application of EU Consumer Law by the courts of EU Member States. The Study has been commissioned by the EU Commission to an international consortium, under the auspices of the Max Planck Institute for Procedural Law (MPI) located in Luxembourg. The concortium involves researchers from the Universities of Florence, Ghent, Heidelberg, Madrid (Complutense), Oxford, Paris (Sorbonne), Rotterdam, Uppsala, Vienna and Warsaw and National Reporters from all EU Member States. National Reporters in every EU Member State have gathered and analysed empirical and legal data, concerning national procedures and practices. Each National Reporter will present a comprehensive Report, based on a uniform template, which will be included in a consolidated Final Report.
