Abstract

Essential Cases: Public Law provides a bridge between course textbooks and key case judgments. This case document summarizes the facts and decision in R (on the application of Begum (By her litigation friend, Rahman)) v Headteacher, Governors of Denbigh High School [2006] UKHL 15, House of Lords. This case concerned whether a school unlawfully limited a pupil’s right to manifest her religious beliefs through religious dress. The case note explores how a balance is struck between competing qualified rights, and so also contains discussion of the concept of proportionality. The document also includes supporting commentary from author Thomas Webb.
