A new and fully updated edition of Jo Shaw's popular textbook, Law of the European Union provides an account of the constitutional principles and legal institutions of the European Union. Written in an easy-to-understand and engaging style, the book assumes no prior knowledge. It places EU law in its context, examining its relationship with the national legal systems and national constitutions, as well as the role of the EU within a wider global order.
This much anticipated new edition is completely up-to-date after the coming into force of the Treaty of Amsterdam and fully updated in all areas of coverage. It covers the 2000 Intergovernmental Conference, the Convention drafting a Fundamental Rights Charter for the EU, the resignation of the Commission in March 1999 and the programme for reforming the Commission. Two new chapters deal with values and principles in the EU constitutional framework, and at the end of most chapters can be found lists of relevant websites for further reading.
