European Union Law
The European Union has existed for over half a century; and European law has come to influence almost all fields of national law, including administrative law, constitutional law, criminal law and even tort law.
But what is the European Union? How does it work, and how does it produce European law? Written with exceptional clarity European Union Law offers a classic textbook for students and practitioners of European law alike. Using a clear framework, it guides readers through all the core constitutional and substantive topics of EU law.
Extracts from classic case law are complemented with extensive and critical discussion of the theoretical and practical aspects of the European Union and its law. Chapters are enriched with almost 150 colour figures and tables, which clarify complex topics and illustrate relationships and processes.
Suggestions for further reading direct students to significant pieces of the academic literature for deeper self-study, and a companion website with full 'Lisbonised' versions of the cases cited in the text completes the learning package.
