What is meant by the “European Court”?

Certain legal cases can be heard by the Court in Europe. Protocol 2 gave the Court power to provide advisory opinions. Protocol 9 permitted individuals to bring cases before the Court subject to ratification by the respondent state and acceptance by a screening panel. The present structure of the Court as a permanent body with full-time judges was established on the 1st November 1998.
