combines clear explanatory text and practical learning features with extracts from a wide range of primary and secondary materials. The book has been structured with the needs of undergraduate courses in mind. Opening with consideration of basic constitutional principles (in which no previous knowledge is assumed), the chapters move on to cover all other essential areas, before closing with consideration of the principles and procedures of judicial review. This edition includes a new ‘case study’ chapter on human rights, terrorism, and the courts that illustrates how the Human Rights Act has been used in practice across the legal system, providing extra insight into the importance of both human rights law and the process of judicial review. The book has now been fully updated to account for the latest developments in constitutional law and politics, including the UK coalition government’s programme of reform and the May 2011 referendum on electoral reform. It also features enhanced discussion of the role and importance of tribunals and inquiries to ensure that students are familiar with these important sources of administrative justice.Less
