Second edition of European Union Law of State Aid published


Today Oxford University Press published the second edition of European Union Law of State Aid, edited and co-authored by Kelyn Bacon, with contributions from a number of leading practitioners and academics, including Daniel Piccinin also of these chambers.

Since the first edition in 2009, European Union Law of State Aid has established itself as one of the leading practitioner textbooks in the field of State aid. It offers comprehensive coverage of State aid law and policy, including chapters on the various forms of both horizontal and sectoral aid, as well as detailed commentary on the State aid enforcement procedures in the Commission, European Court and the national courts. The new edition has been fully updated and revised to cover the developments since 2009, including an entirely new chapter on the financial sector. The text also incorporates the most recent legislative developments during June and July this year: the adoption of the 2014-2020 Regional Aid Guidelines, the new Banking Communication, and the amendments to the Procedural Regulation and the Enabling Regulation.
