About the Authors
  • Written with exceptional clarity, European Union Law constitutes a classic textbook for students and practitioners of European law. Using a clear structural framework, it guides readers through all the core constitutional and substantive topics of EU law, and provides in-depth coverage of the most important internal and external policy areas of the European Union. Extracts from classic case law are complemented with extensive and critical discussion of the theoretical and practical aspects of the European Union and its law, leading students to a deep understanding of the subject. Chapters are enriched with more than one hundred colour figures and tables, which clarify complex topics and illustrate relationships and processes. Suggestions for further reading direct students to significant pieces of academic literature for deeper self-study, and a companion website with full 'Lisbonised' versions of the cases cited in the text completes the learning package.

    • Integrates numerous case extracts while maintaining a continuous, single-authored narrative
    • Combines straightforward explanation with scholarly analysis, highlighting theoretical approaches and key academic debates
    • A two-colour design emphasises case extracts and enhances figures and tables

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Schütze's book is comprehensive, thoughtful and up to date. The analysis of the case law displays his customary lucid style. Written in coherent prose, without long excerpts interrupting the flow of the text the reader gets to see a fuller and more stimulating picture of EU law.' Stefan Enchelmaier, Lincoln College, Oxford

    'Offers a broad overview of the law of the European Union that will not only help students understand EU law, it will get them thinking about it and perhaps even playing a role in shaping it. … a thoroughly insightful overview and critical analysis of EU law.' Hans Vedder, University of Groningen

    'A challenging and stimulating account of European Union law.' Tobias Lock, University of Edinburgh
