European Law sets out the doctrines, principles and case law of the main areas of EU law, and where appropriate explores how they interact with national legal principles and tenets. This fifth edition has been fully revised to include recent developments in the area. Taking into account the far-reaching changes made to European law by the Treaty of Lisbon, it covers all important new cases and legislation whilst developing existing topics. Treatment is
given to a number of new regulations on jurisdiction and choice of law and a large number of recent decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union and the Court of First Instance across a range of European law issues.
The analysis of cases is complemented by the use of specimen forms and precedents as examples of documentation students will come across in practice. Although primarily aimed at apprentices studying on the Professional Practice Courses, the manual will also be of great interest to those who find that EU law touches upon their practice, whether in the public or private sector.
