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 fifth edition continues to look at the main themes of EU law in a logical and progressive manner. Updated to recognise the increasing significance of citizenship on the Free Movement of Persons, this book provides the reader with a clear understanding of EU law, concentrating on how, and especially why, the law has developed as it has.
The new edition incorporates numerous learning aids, including; summaries; end of chapter questions for self-testing and reflection; updated flow diagrams; a glossary of terms and important tips on how to approach examination questions. This student-friendly text is broad in scope and highly accessible, inspiring students toward further study and showing that understanding EU law can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
