chapter  3
Human Rights Law
Pages 36

This chapter shows how to analyse, research and construct an argument in relation to the moot problem presented by the fictitious case of Swifter and Handsworth v Daily Herald. This is a human rights law themed moot problem question. Milly Swifter is a young pop star who recently got married to the children's television presenter Laurence Handsworth. Milly is particularly known for her sexually provocative songs and dance routines. Laurence, on the other hand, has a particularly clean-cut image. The chapter focuses on how to research the areas of law related to Swifter and Handsworth v Daily Herald. This problem question differs from the previous two as it includes the Human Rights Act 1998 and requires the advocates to engage with non-domestic case law and an international instrument, namely the European Convention of Human Rights.
