Constitutional and Administrative Law: Text with Materials

Front Cover
OUP Oxford, Jun 14, 2007 - Law - 920 pages
The fourth edition of Constitutional and Administrative Law: Text with Materials provides students with a complete introduction to Public Law, covering all the core topics on LLB courses. With a wide selection of essential materials drawn from both legal and non-legal sources such as official publications, integrated with clear and lively commentary, this book serves as an invaluable portable library and reference source for students. Drawing from their considerable teaching experience across the UK and Europe, the authors recognise that the eccentric and complex nature of the UK's constitutional system can sometimes be inaccessible for students with little prior knowledge. The book therefore guides students through constitutional and administrative law within the context of its historical development and its current political environment, making effective use of topical events to explain the difficult underlying theoretical issues, without loosing the essence of the law in a welter of detail. Online Resource Centre The fourth edition is accompanied by a website that provides ongoing updates to judicial and legislative developments since the publication of the book, ensuring students are kept informed of the latest key legal developments. It also serves as a research portal, providing a wealth of links to useful websites and materials available online.
