RSS Feeds by the Court

The Court added a few features to its website last week which makes it even easier to keep track of its work. Apart from existing feeds on news, webcasts of the Court's hearings, bulletins of the Court's library, and case information notes, there are now also feeds on the most recent judgments and decisions. The good thing is that the latter can be suited to the preferences of the users: either judgments or decisions or both, and either all of them or only the ones with importance levels 1 and 2. In addition, one can choose to receive feeds on cases concerning specific countries.

What's more, and this should help the implementation and use of the Court's judgments in national jurisdictions, the Court plans to put translations of a selection of cases on its website. One may presumre this would mostly concern translations into the language of the defendant state - which would be very useful!
