About the series

Ius Communitatis

The series Ius Communitatis – Textbooks on European Union Law de lege lata focuses on various aspects of European Union Law.

The volumes cover the most important topics in the ‘Europeanisation’ of law. For practitioners – solicitors and barristers, corporate lawyers, judges or lawyers in state authorities or ministries – who do not wish to turn a blind eye to European law, the series provides a reliable treatment with sufficiently detailed references to the important problems. The volumes provide practitioners with all they need on the EC level, and moreover give comparative law and legal policy insight. As a series, they give an overview of those areas most affected by European law. Likewise, they provide advanced students with material for excellent examination results. Each volume is written by an authoritative expert in the field. The remaining volumes will follow in 2008 and 2009. All the books in the Ius Communitatis-Series focus on Community regulations as experienced in daily practice. Each volume covers the entire field of law in a distinctive and comprehensive way.

The series is published under the editorial supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. Stefan Grundmann LL.M. (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany), the co-founder of the Society of European Contract Law (SECOLA).
