It has been several years until now that the rules of Community competition law are applicable and relevant in Hungary, despite of the fact that the topic had not been properly worked up in academic literature. The Community competition law does not only affects through its direct effect but it covers the whole system and practice of the Hungarian competition law, so it has indirect relevance even in the exclusively national cases as well.
Nowadays, within the EU in cross-border civil law suits the questions of jurisdiction, recognition and enforcement of judgments, and the co-operation of the courts are regulated by the community law. Due to this, the relevance of the Hungarian private international law regulations became secondary in these issues, the national rules prevail only in cases non-related to the EU. If the legal dispute crosses the borders and related to the EU, the rules of European private international law must be applied. The handbook introduces the relevant Community law regulations which are not only highlighted by the often inaccurate translation of the relevant regulations, but also by the decades of the European Court of Justice jurisprudence in many issues.

The book is the first Hungarian-language systematical presentation of the European Community’s commercial law, and material of legal higher education curriculum as well.
