Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the impact of EU law on the Italian legal system. Topics discussed include the relationship between Community law and domestic law, and substantive and procedural law. It is argued that dialogue with the ordinary judge, who usually interprets and applies Community law, is enriched by the preliminary ruling mechanism, which builds on the synergy between the Community judge and the national judge to create the very richness of the Community legal system and the fundamental reason for its success.
