New title: Foster on EU Law

This month will see the release of a new edition of a book detailing the fundamentals of EU law, authored by a Dean at the University of Wales Faculty.

The latest edition of Professor Nigel Foster’s book ‘Foster on EU Law’ provides an accessible and straightforward introduction to EU law; it is an ideal entry point to the subject without compromising on depth of analysis.

The book has been carefully developed to ensure that coverage is closely tailored to undergraduate courses in EU law, making this an ideal textbook for students.

Each chapter contains an introduction, clear headings, and focused suggestions for further reading to make the chapter accessible and user-friendly, whilst also providing a platform for further study.

The book is completely up to date and incorporates the recent changes brought about by the Lisbon Treaty and new legal structures and dynamics affecting EU law following its ratification.

Speaking of the publication of his new book, Professor Foster said:

“This is the last of my four EU law book titles to be updated, following the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty and was able to take account of the changes after the dust had settled and the new EU and FEU Treaties had entered into force. Whether I make it to 100 titles is a big and far from easy to answer question. I guess just watch this space!”

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.

The publishing of this book marks a milestone for Professor Foster as it is the 50th edition of a book published in his name. He has authored a further seven law-related books in a career spanning over 20 years.
