Second or third year LLB courses in EC or EU law in law departments. One-year full-time or two-year part-time CPE (common professional examination) or Diploma courses in law departments. Students of non-law disciplines taking introductory courses in EC law. The book treats Community law in a realistic, non-abstract manner, as a highly important source of law in regular and frequent application in the UK courts. Community topics are illustrated as far as possible by decisions of the ECJ referred by UK courts, and each major area of substantive law is explored by way of its implementation in the UK. The first part of the book focuses on the institutions and general principles of EC law in some depth, the remaining three parts focus on the main principles of the substantive law: free movement of persons and services, and rights of establishment; free movement of goods; and competition law.
