European Law - horak Attorneys-at-law, Germany
European law concerns all that rights regarding all the European international organizations. The Law of the European Communities constituted the basis for today's European Union, that evolved in a central legal sphere. European Law is the borderless Law in Europa and it is subdivided into 2 different areas:
- European law, strictly speaking, describes the law of the European Union;
- European law, in the broadest sense, also describes the rights of the European international organizations.
European Law (in the broadest sense)
The European Law, in the broader sense includes both European law in the strict sense and the law of other European organizations. These include the following:
- Western European Union
- Council of Europe
- European Convention on Human Rights
The European agreements (agreements according to international law between the participating States) include:
- European Social Charter
- European Convention on Human Rights
- European Economic Area (EEA)
- Convention on Jurisdiction and the Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters (Lugano)
- European Convention on the Work of Passenger Persons Practicing International Road Traffic (AETR)
- Schengen Convention
- Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)
- Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
Only the participating States themselves have the right to conclude an agreement. In order to develop an immediate legal effect in a domestic legal order, constitutional applicable standards or a public act of transposition are required. European law, on the other hand, can also be applied without a Member State act of transposition.
European Law (in a strictly sense)
In the strict sense of the term, European law is the law that regards the European Union and the Euratom. The European right in a strictly sense, can be applied directly, without a national transposition act of the Member States and the priority of Union Law before national law. The EU law is therefore a particular supranational legal system.
