    Abstract

    This paper considers the most important changes brought by the Treaty of Lisbon to the functioning of the Court of Justice of the European Union. These changes concern the internal organisation of the institution, the appointment of its members and the extension of its jurisdiction in the areas of freedom, security and justice, foreign and security policy, as well as its new power to protect fundamental rights. Concerning Court judges, the paper explores the theoretical option of increasing their term of office to nine years to ensure a greater degree of continuity in exchange for non-renewability - a change that will enhance the independence of judges. This paper is written in French, prefaced by a synopsis in English.
