Product Description


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.

'An excellent book encapsulating present legal principles within their historical contexts' (Oxbridge Legal Review)

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good constitutional law book 21 May 2010
I have read several constitutional law books and this is one of the best. Really well written, easy to comprehend, lots of useful information and doesn't send you to sleep... Very helpful for both exam revision, and essays. I would recommend this, also Lisa Webley Public Law is really good too. Am currently studying an LLM.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 9 Mar 2013
By Hannah
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although I hate doing Law at Uni, this booked proved to be essential whilst studying Public Law. It was on the reading list to purchased it previous to starting Public Law and I'm glad I did as there was always fighting for copies of it in the library. Definitely worth getting your hands on.

2.0 out of 5 stars my review 8 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was undecided between this book and the Barnett book but I decided on this one, and to be honest, I think I may have made the wrong decision!I personally havn't found this book very helpful and found it very hard to navigate around it. My friend bought the Barnett book and having looked at it, I would recomend that one rather to this one.
