Content Type


EUR-Lex, formerly Celex, is the online access to European Union law. Opened in 1981, it is the oldest legal database.

The articles in this anniversary book, written by different contributors from inside and outside the Publications Office (which manages EUR-Lex), give an overview of the past, and present reflections on future evolutions. Documents on the legal basis of Celex and EUR-Lex, as well as a chronological overview, complete more personal views. The analysis of the past services goes beyond the history of a legal database; it also shows the slow evolution towards true free-of-charge access to law for everyone.
