Cases and Materials on Constitutional and Administrative Law provides students with access to the wide range of legal materials they need for their courses. The leading cases are combined with legal, political and philosophical materials linked together with notes and questions for discussion. The seventh edition has been fully revised and updated to take account of the latest political, statutory, and case law developments. New material includes discussion of the Sewel Convention relating to legislation by the Westminster Parliament in respect of matters devolved to the Scottish Parliament; extracts from major appellate decisions on the Human Rights Act 1998, such as R v Lambert [2001] UKHL 37, R v A (no. 2) [2001] UKHL 25, R v Secretary of State for the Home Dept., ex parte Daly [2001] UKHL 26, Stott (Procurator Fiscal, Dunfermline) v Brown [2000] PC, R (H) v London North and East Region Mental Health Review Tribunal [2001] EWCA Civ 415, and Wilson v First County Trust Ltd [2001] EWCA Civ 633. This book takes a critical look at the main doctrines of constitutional law and examines the operation of the constitution in relation to Parliament, the Executive, and the citizen. The authors adopt a refreshing approach, providing students with a range of views on challenging issues that will stimulate thought and ideas.
