European Union Law is written for students on LLB and GDL courses and aims to reflect developments in legal education. The book fully explores the core areas of European Union law, whilst setting them in a contextual and practical framework. Its writing style is accessible to all.
To show how the law applies in reality, key cases are summarised and explained in discrete boxes, and the structure of European Union law is abundantly illustrated with diagrams, tables and other visual aids. At the end of each chapter, summaries enable students to remember the main relevant points, and, to encourage them to engage further with the law, there are suggested reading lists.
