There are probably few rules that have generated as much case law as the European Treaty rules on competition.
This book aims to explain the European competition rules by presenting the relevant provisions together with a selection of case extracts pertaining to those provisions. These extracts were carefully selected for their interpretative value. This non-exhaustive selection is limited to the essentials. The extracts originate mostly in the case law of the European Commission, the General Court, the Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights.
The book is divided into four main parts:
- (i) the relevant provisions of the EU Treaties,
- (ii) general (secondary) legislation,
- (iii) sector specific legislation, and
- (iv) the relevant provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights. The Treaties, the Convention and several regulations are supplemented with hundreds of case extracts.
The unique combination of the legislative materials on European competition law and extracts from the most relevant cases makes this reference work an extensive and in-depth compendium of European competition law source materials.
Detailed tables and cross references ensure easy accessibility to the contents of European Competition Law 2012/2013.
European Competition Law 2012 is intended to be a handy reference not just for legal practitioners and economists, but also for academics and students of law and economics conducting research into competition law issues.
