EU Law provides a comprehensive examination of the law of the European Union, covering both the institutions, structure and processes of the EU as well as the substantive law as enacted by the Lisbon Treaty in two distinct parts. The book begins by examining the origins of EU Law, then, unlike other EU Law textbooks, locates EU Law within both an international and a domestic law context. It then looks at how EU Law has evolved before examining the structure and internal and international workings, as well as considering the special role of the European Court of Justice. The second half of the book considers the Four Freedoms (of Goods, Workers, Capital and Movement) before examining Competition Law and then the Economic and Social contexts.
Conway makes full use of the Spotlights Series' carefully-developed pedagogical features, such as; Analysing the Law; Applying the Law; and Making Connections, and indoing so this book goes further than any other textbook to combine a thorough explanation of the law with development of the key skills such as problem-solving, evaluation and critical reasoning, which are essential to exam success.
