About the Authors
  • The emergence of EU Private Law as an independent legal discipline is one of the most significant developments in European legal scholarship in recent times. In this Companion, leading scholars provide a critical introduction to the subject's key areas, while offering original and thought-provoking comment on the field. In addition to several chapters on consumer law topics, the collection has individual chapters on commercial contracts, competition law, non-discrimination law, financial services and travel law. It also discusses the wider issues concerning EU Private Law, such as its historical evolution, the role of comparative law, language and terminology, as well as the implications of the Common Frame of Reference project. A useful 'scene-setting' introduction and further reading arranged thematically make this important publication the student's and scholar's first port of call when exploring the field.

    • Unique combination of introduction to and critical analysis of an important emerging discipline in European legal scholarship
    • Collection offers unrivalled line up of leading commentators in the field
    • Additional features such as useful 'scene setting' introduction and thematically-organised further reading recommendations ideal for students new to the field

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The very appearance of a publication of this sort is indeed a coming-of-age moment for a discipline whose existence was hard to fathom until the 1980s. … Diligent readers will be rewarded by the richness of the resulting picture …' EUSA Review

    'The authors have provided a critical introduction to the key areas of European private law. In choosing the topics, finding the authors and editing the chapters, Twigg-Flesner has performed a great and important work. The chapters are well chosen, clear and well written. It is also an excellent textbook for students.' Ole Lando, Common Market Law Review

    'The Companion pays close attention to many of the subject's key dimensions - from the historical (Heirbaut and Storme) and comparative (Smit) to conflict of laws (Muir-Watt) and competence (Weatherill), through a treatment of the role of language (Dannemann, Ferreri and Graziadei) and Directives (Johnston and Unberath), followed by an account of the role of the ECJ (Stuyck) and of various types of harmonisation instruments (Beale on the Draft Common Frame of Reference; Schulte-Nölke on optional instruments).' Leone Niglia, European Law Review
