The EUT: Legal Problems



From a legal point of view the draft EUT represents an exciting attempt to find solutions to those issues which have given rise to legal problems during the thirty years of the existence and development of the EC system. By returning to basic principles, the drafters, who were assisted by four distinguished Community lawyers,1 have put forward institutional solutions to some of the more intractable political difficulties in the path of integration within the EC. They have also attempted to solve, or to provide means for solving, some of the outstanding problem areas of the EC legal order and in so doing have taken the opportunity to codify many of the principles of Community law which have been developed by the Court of Justice but which are not to be found in the EEC Treaty.
