Solanke offers an up-to-date and accessible analysis of undergraduate EU law. Her book is a little gem providing an informed introduction to a traditionally ‘difficult’ subject, often overwhelmed by technical jargon, through current case studies and real-life examples.” Dr Theodore Konstadinides, University of Surrey

 

"Written by a well-established scholar in European Law, EU Law is an ideal textbook for students. It provides a clear and insightful understanding of the legal framework, is intellectually sophisticated in its legal analysis, yet it remains clear and accessible for students." Dr Samantha Velluti, University of Lincoln

 

'Written in a highly accessible and readable style, without becoming simplistic, Solanke's book provides for an important insight into the relevance of EU law for the everyday life.' Dr Nikos Skoutaris, University of East Anglia

 

Each chapter is also supported by directed further reading.
