This highly-respected textbook is regularly updated to provide complete coverage of the Public Law syllabus and is accompanied by a range of interactive resources designed to support teaching and learning. Mapped to the common course outline, it equips students with an understanding of the constitution’s past, present and future by analysing and illustrating the political and socio-historical contexts which have shaped the major rules and principles of public law, as well as on-going constitutional reform.
The new 10th edition has been revised and updated to reflect recent developments in the law including the Defamation Act 2013, Crime and Courts Act 2013 and the Justice and Security Act 2013 and has been enhanced to meet the needs of students and lecturers working in today’s digital world.
