Abstract

Public Law provides an interesting approach to constitutional and administrative law. Topics include: the UK constitution; the institutions of government and the separation of powers; the rule of law; Parliamentary sovereignty; and Parliamentary sovereignty, the European Union, and Brexit. It also looks at the Crown and the royal prerogative; central government; Parliament; and devolution and local government. Next it presents a number of judicial reviews in the following: illegality, irrationality and proportionality, and procedural impropriety. Finally, it considers administrative justice; the European Convention on Human Rights and the Human Rights Act; and human rights in the UK.
