Tridimas identifies and discusses three aspects of the Court’s doctrine of precedent: a) the precedential value attributed by the Court itself to its previous rulings, b) their binding effect on the General Court, and c) their binding effect on national courts. Tridimas’ chapter focuses on the first; namely, the way the Court of Justice perceives its own precedents. He examines the doctrine of stare decisis and its relevance to EU law, the Court’s methodology in distinguishing precedent, express and implied overruling, and the quasi-normative effect of precedent.
