Show Summary Details


Sir Francis Jacobs has been one of the most influential Advocates General in the history of the Court of Justice. He became a member of the Court in October 1988 and served until October 2005, thus being the second longest-serving Advocate General and one of the longest-serving members of the Court. This chapter examines his contribution on locus standi of individuals under Article 230(4). The contribution of Jacobs AG in this area of law can be traced primarily by reference to his opinions in Extramet, UPA, and, more recently, ARE. The chapter focuses on his opinion in UPA and the resulting trialogue among Jacobs AG, the CFI and the ECJ as it unravelled in UPA and subsequent case law.
