Visualising law, as the authors are attempting to do in this book, gives the reader some idea of what the blueprint of the edifice of European Union law looks like. The book contains 298 EU law-related charts (primary, secondary and case law) dealing with the following issues: introduction to the subject, the development of European integration, the institutions, competences of the EU, the adoption of secondary measures, the nature of EU law, introduction to substantive EU law, the internal market, competition law, social law, legal integration and enforcement.
Firstly, the charts are intended as a learning tool for students as well as for practitioners endeavouring to brush up on their EU law skills. Indeed, most people understand and memorise complex or abstract content more easily if they have some form of visual aid at their disposal. Secondly, these charts are intended as a presentation tool. Whether lecturing on EU law in a university, explaining an issue of EU law to a client or making a presentation before the board of directors of a company, visual tools can be highly useful.
This book is accompanied by “Essential EU Law in Text”, which is based on the charts and refers to them.
