Fairhurst: Law of the European Union 5e
This updated fifth edition of Law of the European Union, provides a realistic, non-abstract treatment of EU Law. Topics are illustrated as far as possible by decisions of the ECJ and Court of First Instance, and each major area of substantive law is explored by considering its application within the UK.
The book is divided into four parts. The first part of the book focuses on the constitutional and administrative law of the European Communities and the European Union. The last three parts of the book focus on substantive EU Law: free movement of persons (including EU citizenship, workers, services and establishment); free movement of goods; and Competition law.
- Covers both EU constitutional and administrative law, and substantive EU law in one volume.
