European Union Law - 2nd Edition

by Christian Dadomo and Noëlle Quénivet

Description

European Union Law is written for students on LLB and GDL courses and aims to reflect developments in legal education. The book fully explores the core areas of European Union law, whilst setting them in a contextual and practical framework. Its writing style is accessible to all.

To show how the law applies in reality, key cases are summarised and explained in discrete boxes, and the structure of European Union law is abundantly illustrated with diagrams, tables and other visual aids. At the end of each chapter, summaries enable students to remember the main relevant points, and, to encourage them to engage further with the law, there are suggested reading lists.

New for this edition:

- expanded discussion on the post-Zambrano cases (including Chavez-Vilchez and others of 10 May 2017) on the rights of EU children living with third country nationals; 
- explanation of Article 50 TEU and the state of the Brexit negotiations and the EU position up to 22 May 2017;
- new structure presenting the requirements for EU liability;
- inclusion of a discussion on the euro area and its future;
- inclusion of the EU Pilot Scheme regarding enforcement actions by the European Commission;
- inclusion of changes in light of the reform of the CJEU;
- inclusion of Scotch Whisky Association and Others v Lord Advocate case regarding the compatibility of minimum price per unit of alcohol with Article 34 TFEU;
- inclusion of Ålands vindkraft AB v Energimyndigheten case on protection of the environment as a derogation from Article 34 TFEU;
- expanded discussion on the European Citizenship Initiative, including the latest case Minority SafePack of 3 February 2017.
