About the Authors
  • The European legal order is largely based on judicial co-operation between the European Court of Justice and the national courts. Three case studies on Sunday trading, on equal treatment of men and women and on good faith in contract law reveal that national courts and national litigants are mainly pursuing national interests by means of European law. The European Court of Justice seeks European solutions by delimiting the scope of the European legal order, by transforming the subjective rights of market citizens into political rights of union citizens, and by developing European remedies to enforce European rights.

    • Three case studies look into judicial co-operation between Member States and the ECJ: one on Sunday trading, one on equal treatment and one on good faith
    • Contributes to the debate on the role and function of the preliminary reference procedure in the making of EU law, and does so on the basis of concrete case studies which can be used for teaching
    • Offers an original analysis of the limits of the European legal order, and of the role and function of subjective rights and European remedies

    "What for me is the most rewarding element of the study is Micklitz's insistence on the role of organized law enforcement; he interestingly refers to the landmark study of Handler on US law. This is a challnge to future research on the particularities of the EU legal order and the specifics of the reference procedure as its most original invention." - Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Norbert Reich, Universitat Bremen
