Book Description

Understanding European Union Law is both an ideal introduction for students new to EU law and an essential addition to revision for the more accomplished. It is also indispensable reading for students on business studies courses.

Fully revised and updated, this seventh edition continues to look at the main themes of EU law in a straightforward and logical manner. Updated to discuss the results of the 2016 EU Referedum and the possible impacts of 'Brexit', this book provides the reader with a clear understanding of EU law, concentrating on how and why the law has developed as it has. The section on competition law has also been expanded.
