Judo competitions at the 2015 European Games in Baku were held from 25–28 June 2015 at the Heydar Aliyev Arena in Baku. The competition consisted of seven weight events, and one team event, in each gender; a total of 16 medal events. The team events were the only events not held at the Olympic Games.
The Organizing Committee announced on 4 April 2014 that visually impaired judo will be included as a medal event. This will make the European Games the first continental games to "fully integrate" a Para-sport discipline into its sports programme.
It was announced on 21 February 2015 that the Judo competition in Baku would be held as that years's European Judo Championships. It is still to be announced whether this integration would lead to changes in qualification criteria and numbers.
Qualification will be based on the IJF world ranking list. In addition, 10 'Universality' places will be allocated in the individual competition to ensure a spread of nations can compete.
For the teams event the top 6 teams in rankings will qualify, plus 1 team allocation for Azerbaijan and 1 Universality place. If Azerbaijan already qualifies then a second Universality place will be allocated.
