When the European Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance drafts its own procedural rules, and when it makes decisions on procedural matters, it turns to Paul Lasok's highly regarded book for confirmation and guidance. It is therefore an essential work of reference and practical advice for all legal practitioners preparing a case to be heard before the European Court of Justice. The third edition has been updated and amended to take account of the changes to the jurisdiction and procedure of the Court of First Instance, plus the significant changes brought about by the signing of the Treaty of Nice in order to reduce the increasing workload of the European Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance.
K P E Lasok is considered by many of his peers as a heavyweight in European Community law where his main areas of work include agriculture, competition, public law, telecommunications, trade law (anti-dumping), VAT.
