The leading textbook on public law, this new edition retains its student-friendly style, encouraging readers to engage with and understand even the most difficult areas. It provides a thorough exposition of the major features of the UK's constitution and recent developments.
Revised and fully updated to meet the needs of students undertaking a constitutional and administrative law course in this time of continuing constitutional reform and development, it covers:
the expansion of the European Union from fifteen to twenty-five states, the reform of the office of the Lord Chancellor and the ongoing reform of the House of Lords
the constitutional Reform Act 2005 and its effect on the new Supreme Court and judicial appointments
reforms to police and police powers, asylum and immigration law and the law and security.
Supplying students with ample coverage of the syllabus, this is an excellent textbook for undergraduates and postgraduates studying constitutional and administrative law.
