On the 4th of June, a webinar organized by the European Law Institute was held on the theme of checks and balances during the Covid-19 outbreak. A German judge (Ole Böger), a Danish attorney (Anne Birgitte Gammeljord) and the vice-president of the Conseil d’Etat (Bruno Lasserre) gathered around Lord John Thomas, former chief justice of the Supreme Court of England and Wales, to exchange about their respective experiences. This webinar was the occasion for Bruno Lasserre to expose how the Conseil d’Etat got organised to protect the rule of law in these particular circumstances and to draw up some first lessons for the future.
