Essential EU Competition Law in Charts

The idea behind this “field manual” is for in-house lawyers, compliance professionals, consultants, attorneys, officers in European or national public administration and students to benefit from a comprehensive set of 75 charts illustrating the “core” of EU competition law together with a brief companion text that relates back to the charts. This concept was developed through the combined professional experience of the authors, in both legal practice and in academia.

Visualising law, as the authors are attempting to do in this book by means of charts, gives thereader some idea of what the blueprint of the edifice of EU competition law looks like. Not unlike architecture, the basic concepts seem misleadingly simple but the challenge lies in establishing the correct connections between those concepts. That is what this book seeks to achieve.

First, the charts are intended as a learning tool for practitioners as well as for students endeavouring to study EU competition law or to brush up on their skills in this field. Indeed most people understand and memorise complex or abstract content more easily if they have some form of visual aid at their disposal. Second, these charts are intended as a presentation tool. Whether the task is explaining an issue of EU law to a client, making a presentation before the board of directors of a company or lecturing on EU law in a university, visual tools can be highly useful.

This book is supplemented by a companion website, which comprises a number of exercises as well as a comprehensive set of reference legal texts which are available for download and it also informs readers about updates and corrigenda.

Fiduciary Property Management and the Trust

Historical and Comparative Law Analysis

In the history of law, the English institution of the trust is one of the most original and least straightforward institutions in the theory of private law,which rests on the foundations of Roman law. On the other hand the legal institution of the trust and similar legal arrangements were introduced in several countries with civil law and mixed jurisdiction.

The book discusses the development of use and the trust and also examines other contemporary legal institutions that may have played a role in the development of the trust. It deals with the description of the rules of the trust, including variations in the definition of the trust, and its common classifications in literature and also works up questions concerning the adoption of the trust in civil law systems. It also raises issues that continue to particularly impede and prevent the full application of the rules of the trust in the legal systems of civil law to this day. The book provides an overview of legislative methods and legal practices in different countries with a potential to implement the trust or trust-like legal devices and discusses the main international efforts aimed at the unification of law too.

The author also describes the background and main rules of the fiduciary property management contract in Hungary. The work is perhaps unique in its choice of providing a detailed analysis of Hungarian regulation.

István Sándor is associate professor of law at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest and he is also a practising lawyer. He visited several foreign universities and research centres as research fellow or visiting lecturer. He is member of the International Bar Association, Interlegal, International Federation of European Law, Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, Selden Society and numerous Hungarian law and scientific associations. He published several books and articles in trust law, company law, legal history and civil law.

Handbook on the European Union

Previous editions of the Handbook on the European Union were published in tens of thousands of copies in English, French, Hungarian and Slovak. The European Commission, among others, granted financial assistance to its distribution and translations. It is used as reference volume at several universities and colleges, and is one of the books of first choice for people aspiring to become or already working as officials at EU institutions.

The book provides a comprehensive overview of the European Union and its functioning from a political, economic as well as legal perspective, outlining the EU’s institutions, policies and legal and decision-making mechanisms in simple language. It also contains a glossary of 400 terms, which can serve as a compendium on its own.

This book owes much of its success to the fact that it evolves together with the European Union, keeping its readers abreast of the latest changes in Europe’s architecture. One would be hard pressed to find many volumes that follow the EU’s development so closely, with subsequent editions published so frequently. This latest edition presents the post-Lisbon Union as overhauled by the Treaty of Lisbon, discussing the latest policy reforms from Europe’s response to the financial and economic crisis to agricultural policy reforms, from the EU as a global player to a revised European energy policy. As in the case of previous editions, the Handbook gives an exhaustive and up-to-date overview of the Union, making it an essential read for those who want to know more about the EU and how it works.

Professor Zoltán Horváth is the author of eight books on the European Union and international organisations. He studied in Hungary, France and the United Kingdom, and wrote his PhD thesis on EU decision-making. He has worked at the University of Economics of Budapest, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Hungarian National Assembly, and the Budapest Management College. In the last few years he has also led on behalf of the EU several capacity building and EU approximation projects in candidate and potential candidate countries. His last book was nominated for the European Book Prize in 2011.

Manuel sur l’union européenne

Les éditions précédentes du Manuel sur l’Union européenne ont été publiées en plusieurs dizaines de milliers d’exemplaires en langues anglaise, française, hongroise et slovaque, ses traductions et sa distribution ont été soutenues entre autres par la Commission européenne. L’ouvrage fait partie du programme d’études de nombreuses universités et écoles supérieures et il est souvent utilisé par les fonctionnaires travaillant au sein des institutions européennes et les candidats participant aux concours de l’UE.

L’ouvrage fournit une vue d’ensemble claire sur l’Union européenne et son fonctionnement en présentant, dans un langage simple, son système institutionnel, ses différentes politiques, ses mécanismes juridiques et la manière dont elle prend ses décisions. De plus, le manuel est complété par un glossaire comprenant près de 400 expressions, consultable de manière totalement indépendante du manuel.

Ce livre doit son succès en grande partie à ses actualisations régulières qui suivent, quasiment en temps réel, l’évolution de l’Union européenne et tiennent ainsi le lecteur au courant des changements les plus récents de l’architecture européenne. La nouvelle édition présente le fonctionnement actuel de l’Union, modifiée par le traité de Lisbonne et présente les réformes récentes, entre autres les réponses données à la crise économique et financière, la réforme de la politique agricole, les composants du rôle plus important que l’Union s’attribue sur la scène internationale et la politique énergétique refondée sur de nouvelles bases. D’une manière similaire aux éditions précédentes, le manuel propose, dans la logique de présenter les évolutions les plus actuelles, un ensemble de connaissances fondamentales indispensables pour ceux qui souhaitent connaître et comprendre le fonctionnement actuel de l’Union.

Le professeur Zoltán Horváth, auteur de huit ouvrages sur l’Union européenne et les organisations internationales a poursuivi ses études en Hongrie, en France et au Royaume-Uni. Il a soutenu sa thèse de doctorat sur le système de la prise de décision au sein de l’Union européenne. Il a collaboré à l’Université de l’Economie de Budapest, l’Académie hongroise des sciences, l’Assemblée nationale hongroise et l’École supérieure de management de Budapest. Récemment, il a mené au nom de l’UE plusieurs projets de renforcement des capacités et de rapprochement à l’UE dans des pays candidats et candidats potentiels à l’adhésion. Son dernier livre a été nominé pour le Prix du livre européen en 2011.

Stock corporations

A Guide to Initial Public Offerings, Corporate Governance and Hostile Takeovers

This volume offers an indispensable guide for those who intend to gain a deeper insight in the world of corporations operating publicly on the stock exchanges. The authors of the book introduce the IPO’s and the operation of listed corporations on the regulated markets including the possibility of hostile takeovers. Special attention is paid on the normative basis of both ethical and legal aspects of corporate governance.

The book can be used as a handbook as well; it guides professionals on the basis of practical information in three parts. Initially, it describes the establishment of public corporations, and the mechanisms of initial public offerings. Afterwards, it introduces the rules pertaining to corporate governance. Finally it highlights the regulatory background of acquisitions.

The book pays a particular attention to the regulatory innovations of the past decade, which can be regarded as a direct consequence of the various crises, which started from the capital markets. The volume includes both the highly regarded international professional viewpoints, and a wide ranging comparative legal background.

The authors considered it important to include the analysis of the conditions required for the foundation of a deep and liquid capital markets, and an overview of the literature on stockholder structures.

This book on the one hand focuses on European and US regulatory solutions, but the Hungarian regulation on investor and creditor protection also gets a detailed introduction, which may serve as a guiding post for the investors visiting the Hungarian capital market, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective.

THE LAW OF THE EUROPEAN UNION IN HUNGARY: INSTITUTIONS, PROCESSES AND THE LAW

This book examines the impact of European Union law on the state and the law in Hungary. It focuses on the legal and institutional changes and the institutional adaptation processes induced by EU law and it gives an accurate and accessible account of this largely transparent process of legal and institutional transformation. It looks at the institutional responses in government to the direct adaptational pressures following from various areas of EU law and governance, in particular, the mechanisms and practices adopted for the harmonization of national law with EU law, including the external acquis, the application and enforcement of EU law in Hungary, and the protection by the Hungarian government of rights and Hungarian interests before EU courts. It also covers substantive legal changes in domestic law based on provisions of EU primary and secondary law and the general principles of the EU legal order. It examines the primary avenues of legal adaptation for the Member States under the EU framework including the modifications in domestic constitutional law required by EU membership, the interpretation and application of EU law by domestic courts and the application of EU (competition and state aid) law by Hungarian authorities.

The Rule of Law and Terrorism

The relevance of the present volume on terrorism and the rule of law is constantly and unavoidably around us. The authors first seek to identify theoretical considerations and their practical implications starting with broad social and legal science concepts that boil down to legislation and decision-making. Next the book’s focus narrows down to Europe first, and to the European Union and the European Court of Justice later. Finally, a Hungarian case-study is included to illustrate the points that have been addressed in the theoretical chapters.

Identifying EU counter-terrorism law is not an easy endeavor. It is multidisciplinary, inspired by constitutional, criminal and administrative law and security studies. The EU’s multi-layered structure, the absence of its coercive powers and the necessary reliance on its Member States not sharing a uniform opinion only complicate things further. Nevertheless these have not prevented the EU from having a significant impact in the field of anti-terrorism. It is against this background that the authors made an intelligent attempt to re-imagine anti-terrorist legislation that may contribute to the deepening of an ever closer community based on shared values, including the rule of law and a fundamental rights culture.
