European Union law

Strictly speaking, European Union law consists of the founding Treaties (primary legislation) and the provisions of instruments enacted by the European institutions by virtue of them (secondary legislation - regulations, directives, etc.).

In a broader sense, European Union law encompasses all the rules of the European Union legal order, including general principles of law, the case law of the Court of Justice, law flowing from the European Union external relations and supplementary law contained in conventions and similar agreements concluded between the Member States to give effect to Treaty provisions.
