The fifth edition of Craig & de Burca EU Law: Text, Cases, and Materials provides clear and insightful analysis of all aspects of European Law in the post Lisbon era. Building on its unrivalled reputation as the definitive EU Text, Cases, and materials book, this edition looks in detail at the way in which the Treaty of Lisbon has radically changed both the institutional and substantive law of the European Union. Paul Craig and Grainne de Burca are noted scholars on European Law who have a wealth of experience of both teaching and writing in this subject area. Working closely as an author team for nearly twenty years, they succeed in bringing together a unique mix of illuminating commentary and well-chosen extracts from a wide range of primary and secondary materials. Many of the chapters have been substantially or wholly rewritten, including those on key areas such as Institutions, Legal Instruments and the Hierarchy of Norms, Competences, and Legislation and Decision-Making. All of the chapters have been revised to take account of developments in case law and legislation, and to make students aware of cutting edge academic debates.
There is in addition a new chapter on EU Criminal Law. The new edition therefore gives readers a clear understanding of the changes made by the Lisbon Treaty and the way in which the legal and political landscape has developed since it came into force. A revised table of contents facilitates navigation through the book. The Online Resource Centre will contain information about the book and sample chapters.

Review quote

The cases make it an interesting and enriching book for scholars because it offers depth and new insights, but the clear structure and the pedagogical genius of both authors make the book very suitable to students studying EU law for the first time...We strongly recommend this book to every EU law student. Chris Thomale, Juristische Schulung By combining an impressive selection of cases, commentary and legislation, EU Law: Text, Cases, and Materials has obtained (and kept) an almost biblical status. This accolade is well-deserved; the material remains accessible whilst providing wonderful academic scholarship. Russell J Kelsall, The Student Law Journal
