About this book

This book provides fresh perspectives in the legal study of the Court of Justice of the European Union. In the context of European studies, the Court has mainly been analysed in light of its central role in the process of continental integration. Moreover, the Court has traditionally been studied by specialists for its important role as an agent of comparative law. This book studies the evolution of the Court itself, rather than that of the EU legal order in its judge-made dimension, and addresses several institutional aspects of its structure and organization, selected and constructed as a complete range of symptomatic figures of judicial institutionalisation. In doing so, the author seeks to showcase how the development and the institutional evolution of the CJEU happened through a selective internalization of comparative influences.

Reviews

“This book brings an innovative and unique perspective into the role and case law of the European Court of Justice. Making use of an impressive array of methodologies and comparative sources, Pierdominici looks beyond the judgments of the EU’s higher court into its inner workings and institutional dynamics to make new sense of those judgments. This original and insightful approach makes this book not only an essential contribution to understand the role of the CJEU but the role of courts in general.” (Miguel Poiares Maduro, former Advocate General at the Court of Justice of the European Union, and Director of the School of Transnational Governance at the European University Institute, Italy)

“This book offers a very rich analysis of comparative materials to shed a new light on the CJEU by exploring its historical institutional evolution rather than the decisive role it has played with respect to the evolution of the EU legal order. In doing so, Leonardo Pierdominici offers an original and fascinating analysis showing how the CJEU has engaged and internalised the solicitations to its structure and its organisation which primarily came from the national governments of EU member states. Building on an impressive number of sources, this is a must-read for anyone interested in the institutional development and the role of the CJEU in the EU’s federal judicial architecture.” (Laurent  Pech, Professor of European Law, Jean Monnet Chair of European Public Law, and Head of the Law and Politics Department, Middlesex University London, UK)
