European Union Law

The European Union (EU) is an association of European countries. It was established in 1993. The union was formed to strengthen the weaker or developing countries. The EU is a group of a political and economic union built by many European nations. There are many common things which are used by all of them. All the counties which are a part of the EU use a common currency that is named as the Euro. Moreover, there’s no passport required to move throughout the union. The EU has built a common market and a joint economic strategy. There are so many laws and treaties that every country of the EU has to follow. The new applicants are also eligible to join them but they have to meet the required economic criteria.


The EU is the largest economy in the world by the measure of nominal gross domestic product (GDP). Since its establishment, the main motive of the European Union is to build a single market which is free from all restrictions.
