This new textbook has been specifically written to give law students detailed and up-to-date knowledge of all the main areas of EU law, whilst leading them to examination success. 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. Beginning with an introduction to institutional EU law and with the general objectives of the EU, its institutions and processes; the book then moves on to cover substantive EU law; the fundamental freedoms and EC competition 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.

The text is fully up-to-date and incorporates material on: all important judgments up to 15th December 2007 (including - Case C-234/04 Kapferer; Case T-155/04 Sistemi Integrati; Case C-470/03 AGM Cosmet; Case C-173/03 Traghetti del Mediterranes SpA; Case C-173/05 Commission v Italy; Case C-208/05 ITC Innovative Technology Center and Case C-119/05 Lucchini), Directive 2006/123/EC on Services in the Internal Market, the December 2006 Leniency Notice of the EC Commission, the new fining policy of the EC Commission in competition cases, the Model Leniency Programme adopted by the European Competition Network, and the main competences of the new EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). The book also provides a substantial analysis of, and commentary on the brand new groundbreaking 'Lisbon Treaty'

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 upon the main points
  • recommended reading at the end of each chapter to facilitate further research
  • a full colour map identifying EU Member States (with accession dates) and candidate states
