One of the main ways in which the European Court of Justice has influenced the development of the Community legal order is through the elaboration of unwritten general principles of law derived from the fundamental values underlying the national legal systems.

This book provides an account of the general principles as applied by the European Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance. It highlights the various functions fulfilled by the general principles, the diverse contexts in which they are employed, and the varying degrees of judicial scrutiny that they entail. Tridimas focuses on principles such as equality, proportionality, fundamental rights and the right to a hearing. This book also analyzes the liability of Member States for breaches of Community Law.
