Product Description

From the Back Cover

Constitutional and Administrative Law 13th Edition – Cover Blurb
Since 1997, the United Kingdom has undergone the most radical programme of constitutional reform proposed by any government for at least 100 years. Yet the public appear to find it more difficult than ever to hold government to account. Constitutional and Administrative Law by Anthony Bradley and Keith Ewing casts light on the structure of public law that is at the heart of Britain’s unwritten constitution. The authors lay emphasis on essential constitutional principles and values, while assessing the impact of recent political events.
The new edition of this authoritative work deals with the extensive programme of constitutional reform carried through by the Labour government since 1997. Among developments examined in this book are:
the Human Rights Act 1998, incorporating the European Convention on Human Rights and imposing new duties on all public authorities
the impact of human rights law on freedom of expression, the law of privacy and on judicial review of public decision-making
the devolution of powers to the Scottish Parliament and to Assemblies in Wales and Northern Ireland
the partial reform of the House of Lords achieved in 1999
the new system for the control of elections, the registration of political parties and the holding of referendums
the Freedom of Information Act 2000
the legal framework for counter-terrorism and surveillance created by the Terrorism Act 2000, the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001
the continuing impact of European integration on the British system of law and government
the evolving nature of Cabinet government and the continuing process of reform in the civil service
the evolving standards of ethics in government, affecting the political parties, Parliament, ministers and civil servants.
To deal with these events, many chapters have been extensively re-written and all have been revised. The new material seeks to maintain the book’s reputation for being fully referenced to primary sources, books and scholarly articles, and the work provides an invaluable starting point both for study of the current law and for further research.
The authors

5.0 out of 5 stars tour de force 24 Feb 2003
By A Customer
If you are contemplating or reading law in your first year and find constitutional law as one of your "core" subjects then find yourself in awe of a magnificent learning tool. This book is a perfect compliment to this area of law. Informative, thought-provoking, critically analytical and thankfully digestible...
However, those students intent on learning administrative law in detail should seriously consider a dedicated Admin law text as constitutional writers tend mainly to focus on the constitution giving small siginificance to the vastness of admin law.
This book coupled with Ian Loveland's Constitutional law : A critical analysis, form a perfect marriage in this discipline added to the fact a pre-requisite cases and materials text as suggested by Amazon will enchance your understanding of case law relevance.
Lastly don't forget to obtain as many up to date articles as part of your research as you can manage...Finally good luck and try to read the book once you've purchased it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Informative but boring 13 Oct 2004
Actually, '3 stars' is not a suitable rate for this book as it can either be '5 stars' or '1 star' --meaning you will either love it or hate it. As a law student, I found it quite amazing when I first read. It's full of information and comments on cases. However, when the end of the term comes and achieving in the exams is my only aim, I discovered that this book was absolutely useless. I mean it's good, for academic research, etc. but not for LLB students. We need comprehensive guide books with essential cases (with full information about the cases) only--not a long boring text book (full of lots of cases and reference but no detail for each case) like this. You can't find your answer unless you've read the whole book. However, if you think your language skill is excellent, then there will be no problem about it!

5.0 out of 5 stars now the leading authority on the subject 16 Mar 2004
By A Customer
i bought this book in order to study my first year public law course as part of my llb. it is an exceptionally thorough book that gives you a very secure grounding in the subject. since public and administrative law by rodney brazier is out of print, this is the best option left.
i was privileged enough to be taught by rodney brazier, and along with this book i managed to secure a first in the subject.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 6 May 2003
By A Customer
I found this book far too boring to use effectively. I found I did everything to avoid working from this text. It does help to simplify some bits but overall I did not find it a good buy.
