Product Description

Author: Dr Elaine Fahey | ISBN:978-1-905536-30-6 | Format: Paper Back
Price: €60 | Pages: approx 350 |Publication Date: October 2010


There is a rapid increase in the amount of case law on EU law in the Irish legal order. EU Law in Ireland  analyses key case law, text and commentaries in a diversity of EU law-related subject areas and provides an up-to-date and comprehensive collection of materials on EU law.

There is currently a dearth of research as to the operation of European Union law in the Irish courts. The standard published texts in European Union law do not include any materials as to the Irish legal order and research considering the operation of European Union Law in the national courts has frequently excluded data as to Ireland on the basis of a paucity of case law. However, there has been a major increase in case law in this area from the Irish Superior Courts in recent years and a large increase in European Union Regulations, Directives in Irish law. The new areas of regulation and corresponding case law generated have entailed that a collection of key case law and materials is now a timely one.

A mini-schedule of relevant primary legislation and constitutional texts are included in the publication.

This publication will be of major interest to students, academics, practitioners and Government and public servants, both in Ireland and abroad.
