EU Law for UK Lawyers

Second Edition

Edited by: Aidan O'Neill

This is the second edition of a concise, wide-ranging survey of EU law. It clearly sets out the broad shape of the EU legal system while also giving the reader a good feel for the policy motivations in the Court and the scope of legislative activity. Written in an authoritative yet accessible style, the book provides an ideal guide and reference for anyone facing a problem with an EU law component. The book is written in the light of the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, which has greatly increased the competences of the EU, while making it more subject to human rights review. Among the additions and changes in this expanded edition, the book includes new coverage on: Agency and Distribution agreements, discrimination law, private international law issues in EU law, and the development of criminal law in the EU since the introduction of European Arrest Warrant, and other policy initiatives in the area of security and justice. All chapters now include an extended bibliography that point toward further reading.
