This new book is designed to serve as a working tool for those who study and practice competition law. It includes concise, highly practical summaries of the leading cases in European Community (EC) competition law and its public and private enforcement, accompanied by commentary. The book covers over 200 cases in EC competition law, including those taught in leading UK and European Union universities, creating an attractive reference guide for both students and practitioners. The book differs from existing collections of 'cases and materials' in that it provides a summary of a large number of cases, but does not include long extracts. The cases are arranged by topic and sub-topic, with multiple entries for cases that deal with more than one topic, enabling readers to gain direct access to the issues which particularly interest them without having to sift through other issues raised in the same case. At the beginning of each chapter, a short introduction lays out the relevant regulations, guidelines, and policies, and provides an analytical framework for the cases which follow. The case entries are accompanied by commentary adding context and further insight into the matters dealt with by the courts and Commission.

Review: EC Competition Law: An Analytical Guide to the Leading Cases

User Review  - Chris Von Csefalvay-Bartal - Goodreads

A brilliant analytical guide (ie case extracts plus analysis). Does not replace reading the cases, though! Read full review
