An introductory chapter offers a masterful description of how Treaty provisions, Community acts, international law, and national legal orders interact in the procedures and decisions of the Court of Justice. Further chapters provide analysis and insight into such matters as the following:
- the crucial role of national courts as guarantors of the rights of individuals in Community law
- the validity of acts taken by Community institutions and member States, and protection against them
- the delivery of non-judicial opinion and other tasks of the Court of Justice
- the composition, function, and rules of procedure of the Court
- the organisation of the Court of First Instance and the appeal procedure against its decisions.
Judicial Protection in the European Union is organised to facilitate its prodigious reference value. All important cases are examined, and abundant footnotes clearly indicate relevant precedents in each case. This is a fundamental source for students of European law, as well as a basic reference for practitioners and a valuable analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European system of judicial protection.
