Volume 1 is divided into seven chapters, each covering a separate aspect of contractual relations. The first chapter sets out the rules determining the applicable law of the contract. It deals with the Rome Convention on the applicable national law as well as the interaction of EC legislation and national law.

The subsequent five chapters address specific obligations imposed by EC legislation in commercial, employment, consumer, banking and public contracts respectively. The final chapter deals with the Brussels Convention on jurisdiction and judgments.

The content reflects as closely as possible the exact wording of the EC legislation together with the precise wording of any relevant dicta of the European Court of Justice.

Volume 2 provides a definitive compilation of all the EC legislation relating to contractual rights and obligations. The first section includes the Treaties establishing the European Union and the European Community, as well as the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Section Two includes the Brussels, Lugano, and Rome Conventions. The remaining sections set out all the relevant EC regulations and directives concerning commercial contracts (including competition law), employment law (including freedom of movement, equal treatment, employment protection, safety and health at work, and social policy), consumer protection, retail financial services, and public procurement.

Where the EC legislation has been amended by subsequent treaties, regulations or directives, all amendments have been included to provide a current, consolidated text reflecting the law as applicable at 1 May 1997.
