Happy Europe Day!

The European Unieurope2014on celebrates Europe Day today to commemorate the 1950 Schuman Declaration proposing consolidated European coal and steel industries, binding these  nations so closely together that renewed war would be unthinkable. The Schuman Declaration is considered to be the genesis of what is now the European Union of 28 Member States with half a billion people living in peace together.

You can access the documentation of this supranational organization right here in the Law Library, which  serves as a depository for official EU documents, including many on EU law. See our Guide to EU Documents in the Law Library and learn more about the European Union on its official site Europa as well as the trans-Atlantic partnership on the site of the Delegation of the European Union to the United States.
