Content Type


The fifth edition of this textbook provides analysis of all aspects of all aspects of European Union (EU) law in the post-Lisbon era. It looks in detail at the way in which the Treaty of Lisbon has radically changed both the institutional and substantive law of the European Union.

Many of the chapters have been substantially or wholly rewritten, including those on key areas such as Institutions, Legal Instruments and the Hierarchy of Norms, Competences, and Legislation and Decision-Making. All of the chapters have been revised to take account of developments in case law and legislation, and to make students aware of cutting edge academic debates. There is in addition a new chapter on EU Criminal Law.
