EU Law Directions

Nigel Foster

EU Law Directions is written in an informal and engaging manner with an emphasis on explaining the key topics covered in EU law courses with clarity. No previous knowledge is assumed making this is an ideal main text for those encountering EU law for the first time. The book is logically structured and set out in a way that makes EU law less complicated. The second edition takes in all of the changes resulting from the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty and introduces the new legal framework in clear and simple terms.

The book takes you through all the important aspects of EU law needed for degree level study and examination, from the reasons behind the setting up of the European Union in the first place, to the development of very important substantive areas of law now such as European citizenship and the continuing development of the internal market.
