Overview

The fourth edition of Constitutional and Administrative Law: Text with Materials provides students with a complete introduction to Public Law. 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 recognize 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 losing the essence of the law.

Online Resource Center
The fourth edition is accompanied by a website that provides ongoing updates to judicial and legislative developments, 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.
