Product Description

From the Back Cover

“The book strikes an excellent balance between being comprehensive but at the same time accessible to students. It is excellently structured and explains key concepts and relevant case law in a very helpful manner.”
—Mr Richard Ryder, Senior Lecturer at the University of East London

The Human Rights Act 1998 is one of the most important statutes ever passed in the United Kingdom and this highly acclaimed textbook provides law students with a thorough introduction to the Act and the mass of case law that has followed it.

Human Rights in the UK has a clearly defined structure that firstly explores the background of the Act and how it came to be passed. The book then examines the way in which the Act works in practice, and remedies available under it. The authors go on to discuss the particular rights embodied in the Act, drawing upon case law from both the UK and Europe. Finally, the issue of terrorism is considered in more detail bringing current and controversial debate to the fore.

Combining broad topic coverage with an engaging writing style, Hoffman and Rowe provide an outstanding platform for students wishing to gain a true insight into this contentious and constantly evolving area of law. 

The book uses various tools to help you cement your understanding of the area, including: 

  • End-of-chapter questions to test your understanding
  • Diagrams and photographs to contextualise commentary
  • The full text of both the Act and the European Convention, which feature in the appendices
  • Regular updates to the law available within www.mylawchamber.co.uk
