On January 11th, the Asser Institute, in cooperation with the University of Amsterdam's ACIL and ACELG, hosts the book launch of "The Law of the European Union", a new and comprehensive manual of European law, published by Wolters Kluwer.

The book is a collaboration between forty-eight authors, all of whom are recognized academic specialists in -, or experienced practitioners of European Union Law (and sometimes both). The book’s forty-one chapters make it an easily accessible tool for anyone who wants to be quickly informed about nearly any subject of Union law. Every chapter contains references to other important publications and cases on the subject matter.

According to the publisher, the book ‘belongs on the bookshelves not only of legal libraries, but also of government departments, courts and tribunals (national and international), law firms, embassies and delegations of States –all of whom very regularly deal with challenges of EU law, its institutions and policies’.
