About Legislation in Europe

Following on from the first volume, this unique book is the only collection of native analyses of the status of legislation in 30 European jurisdictions plus the EU.

Each chapter, written by a national authority in the legislative field, presents and critically assesses:

- the national constitutional environment and its connection with EU law;
- the nature and types of legislation;
- the legislative process;
- the drafting process;
- jurisprudence conventions;
- the training of drafters.

The book opens with a comparative chapter on the these six themes, and concludes with an analysis of trends and best practices in Europe.

Legislation in Europe is a necessary addition to law and policy libraries, law-making institutions and agencies, and an invaluable tool for constitutional and drafting academics and practitioners.
