In Constitutional and Administrative Law, the authors draw upon their extensive teaching and research experience to provide a contemporary and engaging account of the key topics which make up a typical Constitutional & Administrative or Public Law syllabus. Controversial issues and academic debates are also highlighted throughout making this the ideal textbook for anyone requiring a strong understanding of both the black letter principles and the wider socio-political context in which the constitutional arrangements of the UK have developed. Fully updated with all the latest constitutional and legal developments in this area, this second edition contains: A dedicated chapter on ‘Political Freedoms and Democratic Participation’ which offers expanded coverage of important civil liberties, including freedom of expression and the right to vote. A new section providing an overview of police powers. Extensive coverage of the implications of the Brexit referendum decision, including the European Union (Withdrawal Bill) 2017 and the ongoing exit negotiations. Discussion of the implications of the 2017 general election and proposed changes to the Westminster parliamentary constituency boundaries. An outline of the Strathclyde proposals on the powers of the House of Lords. Discussion of the mooted replacement of the Human Rights Act 1998 with a British Bill of Rights. Detailed analysis of a number of significant cases include the Miller decisions, R (Evans) v Attorney General, HS2, and R (UNISON) v Lord Chancellor.
