  3. What judgments can be consulted on this site?

    The judgments on our site go back to 1994 at the earliest. As to the judgments which cannot be found back on our website it is recommended to apply to the Registry. The Registry is located at the Wetenschapsstraat 37, 1040 Brussels and is open to the public every working day from 9am to 1pm. You can contact the Registry by phone. Should you want the Registry to send you judgments by mail, a request in writing should first be made to the Registry. Keep in mind, however, that in this case there is a fee to be paid of 0,5 Euro per page.
    The Council of State's judgments were published in book form until 1994 by the UGA editions. This book collection can be consulted in most (law) libraries.

  4. Are the judgments concerning immigration litigation available online?

    As far as judgments relating to foreigners are concerned, only a selection of them is published on this site and always after depersonalization (Royal Decree 7 July 1997). To obtain a copy, contact the Registry.

  5. Are there any translations available of the judgments?

    Yes, there are, but only a selection of the judgments is translated (Royal Decree 25 January 2001). The available translations are put on the website at regular intervals. For further information you may of course also contact the Registry.
