Preview

The prominence of the Advocate General is one of the most distinctive and controversial features of the European Court of Justice. The Advocate General and EC Law is the first comprehensive study of the Advocate General and his role in the development of EC Law. In Part I, the book examines the history of the role, the questions over its future, and the role's importance in the procedures of the Court. In Part II, the book analyses the contribution of some of the most influential Advocates General to the development of specific aspects of Community law, including Francis Jacobs on intellectual property, Walter van Gerven on discrimination, and Jean Pierre Warner on competition procedure. In Part III, the book explores the contributions of a range of Advocates General to specific principles of Community Law, including state liability, direct effect, and the concept of citizenship. This book offers a unique perspective on politics of the European Court of Justice — one of the driving forces behind closer European integration.
