European Competition Law: A Case Commentary explains EU competition law by presenting the relevant legal provisions together with carefully selected case extracts pertaining to those provisions. The selection is based on the interpretative value of the extracts and is limited to the essentials in order to clearly demonstrate how competition rules have been interpreted by the European Commission and the courts. The extracts originate primarily from the decisions of the European Commission and judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights.
Key features include:
* Article by article overview of EU competition law jurisprudence.
* Unique structure means users can quickly locate decisions and judgments on any substantive aspect of competition law.
* Concise and judiciously selected extracts from the judgments in the most important and most instructive cases.
* Through the use of extracts, the authors do not impose their own analysis, but facilitate a nuanced view of competition law rules, giving practitioners a more contextual insight.
* Greater number of case extracts than other books gives a more complete picture of the way rules translate into European jurisprudence.
This unique book is designed for everyday use by practitioners and academics who wish to better understand how competition rules are interpreted in practice, and as a starting point for legal analysis. The book also serves as a handy resource on the exact wording of the essential elements of the most important cases. It will appeal not only to practitioners and academics, but also to all competition authorities in Europe.
