Hilaire Barnett's Constitutional and Administrative Law has consistently provided students with reliable, accessible and comprehensive coverage of the Public Law syllabus. Mapped to the common course outline, the Fourteenth edition equips students with a thorough understanding of the UK constitution's past, present and future by analysing and illustrating the political and socio-historical contexts that have shaped the major rules and principles of constitutional and administrative law, as well as ongoing constitutional reform.

This edition has been fully updated and includes discussion of the consequences of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union, including the impact on the legislative supremacy of Parliament and the relationship between EU and domestic law after departure. It also features discussion of the 2020 Coronavirus Act, with its implications for state power, and ahead of the forthcoming new SQE qualification, revised multiple choice questions on the Companion Website.

Ideal for students studying constitutional and administrative law for the first time, this is an indispensable guide to the challenging concepts and legal rules in public law.
