Not strictly related to EC competition law, but of interest for academics active in the field of European law. In short, a bunch of
conservative French law professor have written an open letter to the President, complaining of the pervasiveness of European law into the national legal order. They argue, inter alia, that EU law lacks the necessary legitimacy to enjoy supremacy over national rules.
Fortunately, a bunch of other
better-educated law professors have also sent a letter to the President, which rightly stresses the inaccuracies and erroneous statements contained in the first letter.
At any rate, I am not sure that J. Chirac will be concerned by this matter. Most likely, the letter has landed straight into the presidential bin (and this is fortunate cos' - to say the least - the letter is not worth more than rubbish).
