Product description

The prominence of the Advocate General is one of the most distinctive, and controversial, features of the European Court of Justice. The Advocate General and EC Law is the first comprehensive study of the Advocate General and his role in the development of EC Law. The book examines the history of the role, the questions over its future, and the role's importance in the procedures of the Court. The book also analyses the contribution of some of the most influential Advocates General to the development of specific aspects of Community law, including Francis Jacobs on intellectual property, Walter van Gerven on discrimination and Jean Pierre Warner on competition procedure. The book explores the contributions of a range of Advocates General to specific principles of Community Law, including state liability and direct effect.

Review quote

This book is a welcome addition to academic literature...the topical approach chosen by the authors has lead to an interesting study, both from a substantive and from an institutional law perspective. Silvia Romein, European Foreign Affairs Review, 13 The book provides a meritorious basis for future work and can be applauded for bravely encouraging discussion of the controversial and topical issue of the future of the Advocate General as an institution. Anyone undertaking further research in this field will find much to learn from the analytical work of Burrows and Greaves. King's Law Journal
