The Enforceability of European Community Law in the United Kingdom

  • Ian McLeod
Part of the Macmillan Law Masters book series


Having considered the institutional structure of the Community in the previous chapter, we can now consider some of the more interesting questions which arise from the way the system of Community law actually works. More particularly, this chapter will examine the extent to which Community law enters into the legal systems of member states and becomes enforceable in their courts. The English perspective will be taken as the primary focus, but the system of Community law is an integrated whole, and therefore cases involving other member states will also be relevant. Since Community law ultimately derives from the treaties, a good starting point is the status of treaties in English law.
