Each Concentrate revision guide is packed with essential information, key cases, revision tips, exam Q&As, and more. Concentrates show you what to expect in a law exam, what examiners are looking for, and how to achieve extra marks. Public Law Concentrate looks at all aspects relevant to constitutional law including sources, the rule of law, and separation of powers. It details the role of the executive, constitutional monarchy, and the Royal Prerogative. It also looks at sovereignty of Parliament and European Union law. It covers topics such as administrative law, judicial review, human rights, police powers, public order, and terrorism. This new edition examines the constitutional issues raised by and the legal effect of the provisions of the European Referendum Act 2015, the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Act 2017, the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, and the proposed European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill. It also looks at the constitutional status of the Sewel Convention, legislative consent motion procedure, the use of secondary legislation by the executive to amend law and the separation of powers implications of Henry VIII Clauses, the constitutional role of the House of Lords in scrutinizing and amending primary legislation, the Speakers' Ruling in the House of Commons on Points of Order and the Contempt of Parliament Motion, the whip system, back bench revolts, confidence and supply agreements in government formation, and the current state of legislative and executive devolution in Northern Ireland.
