About the journal

The Common Market Law Review has had its editorial office in the Leiden Europa Institute ever since it was founded in 1963.

The Common Market Law Review is designed to function as a medium for the understanding and analysis of European Union Law, and for the dissemination of legal thinking on all matters of the European Union Law. It aims to meet the needs of both the academic and the practitioner. Because of the international composition of its Editorial Board, and in view of the fact that it is able to attract contributions from all over Europe and the rest of the world the Common Market Law Review is able to adopt a unique approach to cover issues of European Union law.


Each issue contains articles dealing with matters of current interest; the authoritative treatment given to each topic ensures lasting juridical value. This pre-eminent journal brings you detailed, in-depth examination of the most pressing and far-reaching issues on Union Law such as:

  • Regulation of public procurement
  • Competition law and State aid law
  • Judicial protection and the rule of law
  • EMU
  • External relations and the EU/WTO relationship
  • Telecommunications
  • E-commerce, and
  • Union Law in National Courts

Six times a year, the Review provides vital information and analysis on trends and developments. The Review includes penetrating articles by outstanding practitioners and academics; annotations of cases from the European Court of Justice, as well as relevant cases from national courts, the WTO, the European Court of Human Rights, and other tribunals addressing Union Law; book reviews; and a comprehensive bibliographical survey of pertinent literature.
