EU Law Directions explains the key topics and developments in this fast-paced and increasingly important subject area. Based on 35 years’ experience teaching and examining European Union (EU) law, this book provides a student-friendly text which is readable without compromising on academic quality. The text is easy to follow, with useful features throughout such as case summaries, key definitions, and diagrams. Cross-references and end-of-chapter summaries demonstrate how topics link together and enable students to quickly build up a comprehensive understanding of EU law. The text is clearly broken down into logical sections, guiding students through institutional, procedural, and substantive law from a European perspective. It also takes into account the fast-moving events in the UK generated by the result of the Brexit referendum and the consequent exit of the UK from the EU and entry into the transition period which ended 31 December 2020. A clear and uncomplicated writing style ensures students new to EU law quickly grasp the central elements of the subject. This book has been fully revised in this new edition to take account of new legislative and case law developments, in particular relating to the free movement of persons and equality law. This new edition includes a full consideration of the UK’s relationship with the EU, the 2016 referendum, and the process of negotiating withdrawal concluding with the UK withdrawal on 31 January 2020.
