Craig and De Burca is the standard text

Hartley's book "the substantive law of the EU" and Barnard's accompanying "the four freedoms" are two great books that each cover half of a standard course

I've looked up the Craig and De Burca one, and forgive me if this is a silly question, but is it okay to use it as it was published in 2007 so it won't be up to date with things like the Lisbon Treaty?

EDIT: I am also doing EU Procedural Law... will these books cover this module also?

Good point.

It does include details of the Lisbon Treaty. It is probably missing some recent cases however so should be used with care.

Its probably about time that a new edition is due. I wouldn't be surprised if a new edition is about to come out, but you should check this. If it isn't you should probably try C and De B in the library but might want to find something else to rely on.

"EU Procedural Law" could mean a lot of different things. If you mean what I think you mean, then the books I recommended definitely cover it. C and De B in particular is comperehensive.
