This text provides background information for practitioners wishing to find out about the workings of the Court of Justice of the European Communities. This edition has been updated to reflect recent changes, including the impact on the Court of the Maastricht Treaty and the EEA agreement. The Court of First Instance is now fully operational, with its own rules on procedure, and there is a growing body of case law. The book also deals with amendments to the rules of procedure of the Court of Justice, and developments in case law, including Zwartfeld, Francovich and a number of others. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
