The EU Publications Office maintains a Summaries of EU Legislation page on the EUR-Lex site. It provides straight-forward and easily navigable explanations of the main aspects of EU legislation, policies and activities. Included in the 32 topics covered on the site are: agriculture, education, environment, human rights and justice. There is a search function allowing you to search within summaries. Currently there is a short user survey being run for those interested in providing some feedback.
A study entitled ‘The Evidentiary Effects of Authentic Acts in the Member States of the European Union, in the Context of Successions’, has been published online by the European Parliament.
The paper is the outcome of a European Parliament funded project undertaken by University of Aberdeen Law School staff Members Prof. Paul Beaumont, Dr. Jonathan Fitchen and Jayne Holliday LLM. It is one of three ongoing projects of the Centre for Private International Law.
A discussion of the study will take place in Brussels in December 2016 with Dr. Jonathan Fitchen in attendance.
