About the eBook

It is a great pleasure to welcome the new edition of the book written by Prof. Edward and Prof. Lane, which carries on the success of the earlier ones. This new edition contains a comprehensive and critical study of the European Union legal order, which explores in great detail the changes brought about by the Treaty of Lisbon. Bearing in mind the quality of its authors, it does not come as a surprise that this book is an outstanding piece of academic work. It is a classic which should belong to the library of all persons who are interested in EU law.'
- Koen Lenaerts, Vice-President of the Court of Justice of the European Union, Luxembourg

Key features of the book include:

- Authoritative authorship combining the analysis of a senior academic with the experience of a former judge.
- Comprehensive and wide-ranging in scope.
- Structured specifically to reflect the Treaty of Lisbon reorientation and immediate post-Lisbon developments.
- Extensive reference to primary sources (Treaties, legislation, case law) and to issues of national adaptation.

A fully updated and expanded new edition of a classic text, this authoritative and wide-ranging volume provides expert analysis on the key issues across all areas of European Union law - including its constitutional, procedural and substantive aspects. In particular, coverage of the constitutional and procedural elements includes: historical background and development of the European Union; constitutional structure of the Union; the Treaties: interrelationship and fundamental (constitutional) rules; the institutional framework; jurisdiction of, and actions before, the Court of Justice; sources, principles and methods of Union law.

Comprehensive coverage of the substantive law includes: basic rules; citizenship of the Union; the internal market; the four freedoms; competition; economic and monetary policy; social policy; environmental policy; commercial policy.

Precise and rich in references to the primary materials of the Treaties, the principal legislation and the key case law of the Court of Justice, this highly detailed and comprehensive book will be an indispensable resource for all legal practitioners whose practice must take account of EU Law.
