Book Description

The fifth edition of Craig & de Búrca EU Law: Text, Cases, and Materials provides clear and insightful analysis of all aspects of European Law in the post Lisbon era. Building on its unrivalled reputation as the definitive EU Text, Cases, and materials book, this edition 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.

Paul Craig and Gráinne de Búrca are noted scholars on European Law who have a wealth of experience of both teaching and writing in this subject area. Working closely as an author team for nearly twenty years, they succeed in bringing together a unique mix of illuminating commentary and well-chosen extracts from a wide range of primary and secondary materials.

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. The new edition therefore gives readers a clear understanding of the
changes made by the Lisbon Treaty and the way in which the legal and political landscape has developed since it came into force. A revised table of contents facilitates navigation through the book.

The Online Resource Centre will contain information about the book and sample chapters.

Product Description


The cases make it an interesting and enriching book for scholars because it offers depth and new insights, but the clear structure and the pedagogical genius of both authors make the book very suitable to students studying EU law for the first time...We strongly recommend this book to every EU law student. (Chris Thomale, Juristische Schulung)

By combining an impressive selection of cases, commentary and legislation, EU Law: Text, Cases, and Materials has obtained (and kept) an almost biblical status. This accolade is well-deserved; the material remains accessible whilst providing wonderful academic scholarship. (Russell J Kelsall, The Student Law Journal)

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every EU law student! 17 Dec. 2003
By Michael
This book is the most comprehensive and up-to-date authoritative piece that somebody can find in the market.
The text is very well-structured, following a perfectly logical order, being supported by many authorities, which are commented and explained both on a national and a European dimension. No casebook or supplementary textbook is needed.
The language is very clear - being a foreign student in an English university I had no difficulty in reading and understanding it.
It cannot be compared to any other textbooks in this field! - Simply perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars The law student's Bible!! 3 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This book is absolute quality... providing all the information you could ever need on the topics, excellent case reviews and to top it all, it's easy to read. Perhaps in need of an update to cover the most recent law, this still remains a firm favourite

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for students. 24 Jan. 2005
I have to let law and business students know how much of a life-saver this book is! It looks daunting because of the size of it, but within, it is clear, coherent, very-well-structured and includes loads of extra reading. It's passed me in EC law, so it'll pass you too!

5.0 out of 5 stars The only EU Law book you should buy 20 Sept. 2005
This book is excellent. It is informative, easily set out and is an incredibly helpful research tool when trying to get a grounding for the subject or when writing a piece of coursework. This is responsible for getting me through my EU Law module. There are many EU Law books on the market however, this book is in a catagory all of it's own. It states the essential cases and goes that little bit further than books of the same genre by drawing upon all sorts of legal sources. Buy it now. You will NOT regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The foundation to a good mark. 14 Jan. 2004
By hippo
Don't be daunted by the size of this book, it is huge but covers numerous topics and modules.
The book is a great blend of case law, text and Articles from other writers who give great detail to the piece they are writing about. The detail is there to enable a student to get a high mark, if you're looking to just get through a module, then perhaps nutshells would be a better alternative.
Although detailed, it held my attention and made a very hard area of the law degree a good bit clearer.
I used this book as the basis for introduction to european law, competition law, EU commercial Law, EU social Law and then supplemented those with extra readings and didn't do too badly.
No other Law book will prove as useful for the course as a whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE text- and casebook on EU Law 22 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
Not only is this book an authoritative and comprehensive coverage of virtually all areas of EU Law, but it is very well-written and comprehensible, too. I worked with this book when I was in England (taking part in an exchange program), and despite not being a native speaker I had no problems at all reading this book. Of course, it is not "easy" to read. It is as easy or difficult as any legal text. If even a native speaker says that it is full of incomprehensible words and impossible to read, maybe law is not the right subject for him or her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Aid 16 Jan. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book as it is the recommended reading at University this year for my EU course. It's essential to anyone thinking of purchasing that it's this edition that you buy as the previous ones don't include the Lisbon Treaty; essential to any post 2009 law course!

The book's helpful, well constructed. Organised fantastically and even well referenced if you're keen enough to do reading on top of this. Each chapter concludes with an evaluation which proves really useful for essay writing which for EU is usually analytical. The book appeals to the learner and is constructed perfectly to help you construct a legal argument.

It's not cased in flowery, eloquent language, it's pretty straight to the point, but a lot of legal terminology is used.

Overall, immense revision aid.
