                               Editorial



                             Francis Snyder*



The  Editors are very pleased to announce the birth of the European Law' Journal:
review of European law in context. The creation of a new academic journal, as with any
new  institution, is a difficult but challenging and exciting undertaking. This is
especially the case if, as here, the journal seeks to trace a new path. The European Law,
Journal aims to represent a new approach to European law. Its main purposes are to
express and to develop the study and understanding of European  law in its social,
cultural, political and economic contexts. So far as we are aware, there is currently no
journal of this kind in English or any other language. We hope that the European Law
Journal-or  ELJ for short-will fill this gap.
  I would  like first to introduce the Editors. In addition to myself, they are Brian
Bercusson (University of Manchester and  European University Institute); Christian
Joerges (European University Institute and Zentrum ffir Europhische Rechtspolitik at
the Universitat Bremen); Antoine Lyon-Caen  (Universite de Paris X); Joseph Weiler
(Harvard  Law   School  and  European  University  Institute); Renaud Dehousse
(associate editor) (European University Institute); and Wolf Sauter (managing editor)
(European  University Institute).
  We  are grateful to the excellent scholars, friends and colleagues who have kindly
agreed to serve on the Advisory Board.  They are Andr&-Jean  Arnaud  (Centre de
Philosophie  du Droit, Universit6 de Paris); Claus-Dieter Ehlermann   (Director-
General, DG   IV, European Commission,  Brussels); Lawrence Friedman  (School of
Law,  Stanford University); Leigh Hancher (Faculty of Law, Erasmus  Universiteit
Rotterdam);  Carol Harlow   (London  School  of Economics);  Beate Kohler-Koch
(Faculty of Political Science, Universitdit Mannheim); Neil MacCormick (Faculty of
Law, University of Edinburgh); Giandomenico   Majone  (Department  of Social and
Political Science, European University Institute); Emile Noel (Honorary Secretary
General  of the European  Commission;  Honorary  Principal, European  University
Institute); Fritz Scharpf (Max-Planck-Institut fir Gesellschaftsforschung, Cologne);
and  John Usher  (Centre for European  Legal Studies, University of Exeter). The
Advisory Board  symbolises our hope that the ELJ will have an excellent future, and
we look forward very much to working together.
  The  ELJ will be based at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence. The

  Professor of European Community Law, European University Institute, Florence: Professor of Law,
