In addition, the authors have takeninto account amendments to the Rules of Procedure of the Court of Justice and the Court's amended Statute, they have added expanded treatment of the acte clair doctrine and the Court's Cartesio ruling and a more general revision of the text bringing it up to date by taking into account new case lawand new legal writings.In addition to these important updates, the authors have also revised the structure of the book.
