Commentary

This new edition of Lester, Pannick and Herberg: Human Rights Law and Practice has been substantially re-written to take account of the major changes which have occurred in this area of the law. It includes not only an up-to-date summary of European and UK human rights law but also wider international and comparative case law. It places this subject within its wider parliamentary context and connects with other jurisdictions. Includes coverage on the UK government's latest Green Paper, Rights and Responsibilities: Developing Our Constitutional Framework.
