EC Law in the UK reviews the possibilities for legal redress in the UK courts when rules of Community law are violated. The analysis focuses as far as possible on case law decided by the UK courts and adopts the perspective of the individual litigant.

The book aims to familiarise the reader with the Community legal system and to illustrate its all-pervasive influence on UK national law and aims to change the common perception that EC law is 'foreign law' or an optional subject. The author shows that Community law is an integral part of UK law that can be applied in virtually any area of legal practice.

*EC law is a key area of study for undergraduate and postgraduate law students, and this book will support and illuminate a general course on EC law, particularly for students in the UK.
*Case law based to indicate how EC law can be used as a shield or sword in most areas of legal practice.
