Now in its second edition, European Union Law has been fully revised and updated following the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty in December 2009. The book contains entirely new chapters on the Protection of Human Rights in the EU; the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice and the Common Foreign and Security Policy. Specifically written to give law students detailed up-to-date knowledge of all main areas of EU law, the book provides an in-depth and detailed examination of, and commentary on the areas of institutional and of substantive EU law forming the syllabus of standard academic courses on EU law.
Unlike other texts this book successfully combines authoritative text with case summaries and judgments, these being highlighted in colour tinted boxes for easy identification. The author identifies the relevant points and key facts of the leading cases and discusses the judgments in detail, often in the light of subsequent developments.
Student-friendly features include:
- short summaries at the beginning of each chapter outlining the topics and concepts covered
- an aide-memoire at the end of each chapter to highlight and reflect the main points
- a recommended reading list at the end of each chapter to facilitate further research
- a map identifying EU Member States (with accession dates) and candidate states
- a Companion Website featuring updates twice yearly; annotated links to online sources of interest and essay style self-test questions with suggested answers.
This book is an essential resource for those studying EU law on both undergraduate and postgraduate courses and will be of interest to students of political science, social science and business studies.
