Human Rights Law is written in an engaging and lively style with an emphasis on explaining the key topics covered on human rights law courses with clarity. No previous knowledge of the subject is assumed but the book provides a thorough introduction to the Human Rights Act 1998 and the way in which the Act gives effect to the European Convention on Human Rights. It looks at the main terms and implications of the convention rights themselves, highlighting some of the more complex and controversial issues of the subject.
Howard Davis draws on his considerable teaching and authorial experience to guide students through human rights law in an engaging way, making use of helpful features including definitions, summaries, discussion topics and questions to explain and emphasize key issues. The text is made even easier to navigate through the use of a fresh color design, clear cross-referencing and many headings.
