European Union Law: A Very Short Introduction

Anthony Arnull

Very Short Introductions

  • Offers an overview of European Union law, showing why it is the most ambitious attempt yet made to get historically, economically and legally diverse nation states to work together for the common good
  • Explains the role of the European Court of Justice and other European Union courts, and how they are involved in the application of European Union law
  • Discusses the range of issues that the European Union has the power to regulate, such as the free movement of goods and people
  • Considers the distinction between the European Union's substantive law, which concerns the content of the rules put in place to achieve its policy objectives, and the EU's constitutional and administrative law, which concerns the mechanisms by which those rules are adopted, applied and enforced
  • Contemplates how European Union law might develop in the future in the face of pressures to reform
