ABSTRACT
The aim of the reforms introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon was to simplify and make more transparent the system of Union legal sources and that of the decision-making procedures. This paper examines that how the system of Union legal sources and that of the previous legislative and decision-making procedures were modified and changed with the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon. The study also deals with the question whether the European Union has progressed due to the new legal system or not, that is to say whether the objectives of making the legal system of the European Union more simple and more transparency as set out in the Laeken Declaration have been achieved or not.
