Fully revised and updated, the third edition of EU Law provides an exhaustive, yet easily readable, account of the complex and ever changing subject of EU law. The author gives thorough, authoritative, and up-to-the-minute treatment to the institutional, constitutional and substantive elements of EU Law.

The book is unique in that it successfully combines depth of coverage with an excellent selection of supporting case law, making this challenging subject accessible and easy to follow. Case summaries and judgments are highlighted in colour-tinted boxes for ease of reference, and are accompanied by key facts and analysis, often in the light of subsequent developments.

The student-friendly approach is enhanced by market-driven pedagogical features, including:
• Concise outlines, at the beginning of each chapter describing its content;
• An aide-mémoire, often presented in diagrammatic form, at the end of each chapter to highlight and reinforce key points;
• End of chapter recommended reading lists to facilitate further research;
• End of chapter problem and essay questions testing the students’ ability to apply what they have learnt; and,
• A map identifying EU Member States, and their accession dates; acceding States; candidate States; and, potential candidate States.

The book’s companion website offers a range of teaching and learning resources including an interactive timeline of the EU, useful web links, self-test questions and much more.

This book is essential reading 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. It also provides comprehensive coverage of substantive and procedural EU competition law and thus has its place as a textbook for introductory courses on EU competition law.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This new edition of Kaczorowska’s EU Law deserves to be considered one of the most comprehensive textbooks on the market in this fast moving area of law. Remarkably comprehensive, thoroughly detailed, highly readable and totally engaging, it should be considered essential for any academic or practitioner’s bookcase and in any law library. I am confident all law students will consider it a valuable resource that is hard to better."

Joanne Sellick, Plymouth University, UK

"This book provides students with a most comprehensive and up to date analysis of all of the key areas of EU Law. It is clearly written, and provides excellent end-of-chapter reading lists and exam-style questions."

Caoimhin MacMaolain, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

"EU Law is fresh, current and erudite. Since the first edition, it has been popular with staff and students alike. Challenging material is presented clearly and the chapters contain a satisfying range of wider arguments and academic opinion."

Chris Pawlowska, University of Greenwich, UK
