Review quote

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 * 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 *
