General Principles of Law

European and Comparative Perspectives

Edited by: Stefan Vogenauer, Stephen Weatherill

Examining general principles of law provides one of the most instructive examples of the intersection between EU law and comparative law. This collection draws on the expertise of high-profile and distinguished scholars to critically examine this interaction. It shows how general principles of EU law need to be responsive to national laws. In addition, it is clear that the laws of the Member States have no choice but to be responsive to the general principles which are developed in EU law. Viewed through the perspective of proportionality, the topics of legal certainty, fundamental rights, the dynamic relationship between the ingenuity of the Court of Justice, and the process of Treaty revision are comprehensively illustrated.
