European Union Law 4th editionOxford University Press has published the fourth edition of European Union Law edited by Catherine Barnard and Steve Peers (University of Essex).

European Union Law draws together a range of perspectives from experienced academics, teachers and practitioners to provide a comprehensive introduction. Each chapter has been written and updated by an expert in the field to provide students with access to a broad range of ideas while offering a solid foundation in the institutional and substantive law of the EU.

Written by experts, designed for students; every chapter ensures a balance of accessible explanation and critical detail. Case studies are included throughout the book to enable students to understand the context and implications of EU law, as well as helping to familiarize them with some of the most significant case law in the area. Quotations and examples from key legislation and academic sources are also included to help develop a well-rounded understanding, while further reading suggestions for each chapter act as a springboard for further study and assessment preparation.

The fourth edition features a new chapter on public services, an updated new section on the rule of law, more coverage on data protection, and an update of the Brexit chapter.
