Overview

The Human Rights Act of 1998 incorporates into UK law rights and freedoms guaranteed by the European Convention of Human Rights. Human rights law now affects everyone, yet it is the most uncertain and most unpredictable of all branches of law. This is bad news in some respects but good in others, because it is a highly flexible area where everything is up for grabs. Hard-edged definitions are few and far between, and principles tend to be open to a variety of interpretations - a potential goldmine for the bold, but a minefield for the unwary.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Written in a lively and down-to-earth style very different from that of most law books. It is packed full of case studies which show just what a fuzzy, uncertain and unpredictable area of law this is."
