About the Authors
  • As the preferred choice on EU law for both teachers and students, this textbook offers an unrivalled combination of expertise, accessibility and comprehensive coverage. Written in a way which combines clarity with sophisticated analysis, it stimulates students to engage fully with the sometimes complex material, and encourages critical reflection. The new edition reflects the challenges facing the European Union now, with dedicated chapters on Brexit, the migration crisis and the euro area, and with further Brexit materials and analysis integrated wherever relevant. Materials from case law, legislation and academic literature are integrated throughout to present the student with the broadest range of views and deepen understanding of the context of the law. A dedicated site introduces students to the wide ranging debates found in blogs on EU law, EU affairs more generally and Brexit. This is a required text for all interested in European Union law.

    • Sets out a wide range of legal and non-legal materials that encourage students to see why EU law matters and why it is controversial
    • A dedicated website accompanies the textbook, comprising all the significant blogs and websites on the European Union, thereby allowing access to wider debates
    • Provides chapters on the most polarizing currents events within the EU: the Mediterranean migration crisis, the euro crisis and Brexit

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This textbook does a remarkable job of spelling out the basics of EU law, while at the same time giving the state-of-the-art on recent legal developments and scholarly debates. This edition's reworked section on Eurozone governance and its attention throughout to the impact of Brexit are especially welcome. Chalmers, Davies, and Monti do a great service to instructors and students in the fast-moving field of EU Law.' Francesca Bignami, George Washington University

    'This book has rapidly established itself as one of the leading texts in a crowded field. Its combination of insightful analysis and judiciously selected quotations from primary and secondary sources has proved very attractive to readers at all levels.' Anthony Arnull, University of Birmingham

    'European Union Law has been the outstanding textbook on EU law for over a decade. This new edition combines a comprehensive and interdisciplinary examination of classical topics with important coverage of new challenges, such as Brexit and the refugee and rule of law crises. It is an accessible, thoughtful and balanced book that I would recommend to anyone interested in better understanding the nature of the EU and its legal system.' Mark Dawson, Hertie School of Governance, Berlin
