Trusted by students and lecturers for almost thirty years, Steiner & Woods EU Law is the most comprehensive black letter guide to the subject, leading the reader through the subject in a straightforward way, and bringing together the expertise of three authors engaged in the teaching and practice of EU law.
The book includes a well-balanced range of topics for students taking an EU law course at any level. Offering a careful blend of institutional and substantive coverage, it focuses on explaining the law clearly for student readers. Case detail is clearly sign-posted throughout the text, with key cases highlighted and discussed in feature boxes, ensuring students are up to speed with the most important case law in the area.
End of chapter reading suggestions, along with a detailed bibliography, provide a helpful starting point for essay preparation and independent research.
The book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre which includes self-test questions and answers, a flashcard glossary, downloadable diagrams from the text, an interactive map and timeline of the EU, and video clips relating to the development and procedures of the EU.
As the process of the UK leaving the EU unfolds, readers can also visit the OUP European Union Law Resource Centre for up-to-date comment, opinion, and updates created by our authors to engage students with the legal and political issues and considerations at play.
