Intended as a study aid for law students, covering law subjects at every level from A level and degree level to Law Society and Bar exams, this book on EC law is part of the ""SWOT"" series. ""SWOT""s point out the problems which will be encountered by the student throughout the course, indicating the common pitfalls which contribute to under-achievement or failure in exams.

The books in the series are written by experienced law lecturers who are themselves examiners. Years of watching students make the same mistakes time after time have convinced them that these mistakes could be avoided if students followed a carefully structured approach to exam technique.;""SWOT""s enable readers to face their exams with confidence and increase their chances of success.

This title provides an introduction to the growing area of EC law. It concentrates on the principal rules of the Community legal order and its resultant case law. Examination-style questions and answers are included, and the answers given are designed to show the method in answering the questions as much as the actual substance of the answer.

Full case references are given, and the changes introduced by the Treaty on European Union (Maastricht) are discussed where appropriate. The institutional changes consequent to the entry of the three new Member States have been incorporated where relevant.
