«‘Scholars of EU law have long neglected the works of American legal theorists, and the value they possess for establishing stronger insights into the EU legal order. In utilising the work of Llewellyn, and applying it to a European judicial setting, this book by Cotter is a remarkable piece of scholarship in EU legal theory, and on the judicial nature of the Court of Justice of the European Union.’»

«‘How can legal certainty be ensured in the preliminary rulings procedure? Drawing on the work of Karl Llewellyn, John Cotter’s important book identifies certain ‘steadying factors’ that can help in the search for robust judicial outcomes. It will appeal to anyone interested in the CJEU and EU law more broadly.’»
