This chapter is concerned with the impact membership of the European Union has had upon the Scottish legal system. The chapter discusses the development of the original European Community from the original membership of 6 Member States through to its present membership of 28 in the expanded guise of the European Union. The chapter then discusses the sources of EU law before going on to outline the powers and roles of the various EU institutions. Finally, the chapter discusses the relationship between EU law and national law and the key role played by the Court of Justice of the European Union in this relationship.
