LAW OF THE EUROPEAN UNION
European Union law affects almost all fields of national law intensively. He who finds and presents Union law will often have an important and sometimes even decisive argument in favour of his client.
On the other hand Union law often negatively affects the legal position of clients or possibly even their fundamental rights. In these constellations it is the task of the Union law specialist to defend the clients against thees interferences.
The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union can - properly pleaded - bring about decisive arguments in quite some cases.
In a recent decision the Austrian Constitutional Court (Verfassungsgerichtshof) has decided to apply the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union in all European Union law cases as if it were national constitutional law.
Dr. Weh particularly enjoys to argue with the interactions between the
European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental
Freedoms, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and
Austrian constitutional law.
