Description - Law of the European Union by Penelope Kent
Law of the European Union 3e Cover blurbFRAMEWORKS Each book in the Frameworks series is a comprehensive and concise introduction to the subject. The books are well structured and provide a step-by-step guide to essential principles. They develop a basic framework of understanding to underpin further study of core business, financial and legal subjects in the higher education curriculum. Law of the European Union covers in a single volume the development of the EC and EU, the institutions and their functions, the relationship between EC law and national law, the law of the internal market (free movement of goods, persons, services and capital) and competition law. The book also examines the social dimension (the Social Chapter, equality of pay and treatment, environmental and other policies). In this third edition the author responds to the significant changes made by the Treaty of Amsterdam, not least the renumbering of all the Treaty provisions. Some 'Third pillar' areas relating to police and judicial co-operation in criminal matters now fall within legal control and are described in the book.
Subsidiarity issues have been updated to take account of the Protocol on Subsidiarity. Leading cases on state liability (Brasserie du Pecheur/Factortame, Hedley Lomas) have been considered. Progress in economic and monetary union, and in the harmonization of intellectual property law is described. Recent changes in competition law, including the block exemption Regulation on vertical agreements, are explained. The 2000 Intergovernmental Conference is also covered. The book shows the reader where to find the law in law reports, databases and on the Internet. It is an invaluable guide for undergraduate students of EC law, CPE and Diploma students and as an introduction for legal and business professionals. Penelope Kent is a Principal Lecturer at Middlesex University where she teaches EC law to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
