We are very pleased, very honored, to end this conference, this academic workshop, with a panel of present and former judges, who have kindly agreed to talk informally and frankly about some interesting issues that concern the European Court of Justice. We have two judges who are current judges: John Murray, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Ireland; and we have Richard Lauwaars, who is a member of the Dutch Council of State, the supreme administrative court. And then we have Francis Jacobs, who has recently retired as Advocate General at the Court of Justice after three terms in that function. Our last member of the panel is Lord Slynn, Gordon Slynn, who has successively served as Advocate General at the Court, Judge at the Court of Justice, and a Law Lord in the United Kingdom, the equivalent of a United States ("U.S.") Supreme Court Justice.
