Ruling of the Court of Justice of the EU in the cases Torresi (C-58/13 and C-59/13) on Freedom of movement for persons
On 17 July 2014, the Court of Justice of the EU delivered its ruling in cases C-58/13 and C-59/13 Torresi (Freedom of movement for persons).
According to the Court, returning to a Member State in order to practise there the profession of lawyer under the title obtained in another Member State does not constitute an abuse. For EU citizens, the possibility of choosing the Member State where they acquire their title and the Member State where they practise their profession is inherent in the exercise of the fundamental freedoms guaranteed by the Treaties.
