The new Rules of Procedure of the General Court, which entered into force on 1 July 2015, are the last brick in the post-Lisbon legal structure governing litigation before the EU Courts. This work, based on the completely reformed package of procedural rules, and written by EU Court and Commission insiders, gives a detailed and practice-oriented overview of the whole spectrum of procedure before the EU judiciary. It also presents the system of judicial avenues which enable litigants to enforce their rights under EU law against European institutions, Member States or private parties. The book is a comprehensive reference tool for practising lawyers and helps them present their cases effectively, while at the same time offering valuable guidance to national judges dealing with cases raising points of EU law. Moreover, it provides insights into the reasoning process of the EU Courts, which will be of interest to scholars in the field, and is built around a structure that facilitates its use as a teaching material.
