New Book Tackles EU Law

Posted on 28 February 2011

'Q & A EU Law' by Professor Nigel Foster

Authored by Professor Nigel Foster of the University of Wales, Q & A EU Law 2011 and 2012 is a new book written as a study aid for Law students reading EU Law. The book is just one of four to have been written by the University of Wales’ Faculty members in the first four months of its being.

In the text, Professor Foster stresses that no matter how good your research and study skills, the ultimate test for the law student is the exam. The book explains how to tackle problem and essay questions typically found in exam papers, and how to draft successful answers. Clear guidance is given to students through the process of planning and structuring answers, providing essential advice on what to include and what to leave out.

Exam questions and model answers are divided into chapters covering all major topics. Each question is supported by clear commentary indicating exactly what examiners are looking for, followed by an answer plan listing key points to cover. Chapters begin with an introduction focusing on important points, and end with suggestions for further reading.

The book is supported by an Online Resource Centre containing revision and exam advice, links to websites useful for the study of EU law, and a glossary to develop students' understanding of subject-specific terms. It is suitable for undergraduates on the Graduate of Laws (LLB) course, and post-graduate students on the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) course, who are studying compulsory modules in EU law.

Professor Nigel Foster is the Dean of Business and Law in the University of Wales Faculty. Prior to that he was Professor of European Law and Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Buckingham and prior to that was Jean Monnet Professor of European Law at Cardiff Law School.
