This is one of the Official websites of the European Union and its Parliament. The website is up dated with all the latest up dates on regular bases. This website is a promary source of the European Union Law and it tells us all about the  EU. It gives detail explanation of the purpose of European Union and how its various instuations works. Not only this, but it also covers the EU finances, legal foundations, policies and all its activities. Unfortunately, the website does not mention the authors name nor its place of publication. I have used this source frequently throughout my assisment as it has a great source of information and explains every thing about the functions, History and the formation of European Union. We can say that the Europa website focuses only on the side of the European Union officials and ignores other public opinion in its information. In other words, we can say the website is biased but I still decided to use this website as I find it a excellent source of my coursework as it provides vast information which is relevant for my coursework and the information seems to be quiet well laid out.

He is an well-known author and head of Law School at Birmingham Law School and was the head of Law School and Associate Dean at Angelia Ruskin University.
