Human Rights and Scots Law is a straightforward account of the legal protection of human rights in Scotland. The book concentrates on those areas where substantive or procedural rules are different from the rest of the U.K.

With explanation of the relevant Convention rights, the book looks at the jurisprudence of the European Court on Human Rights and considers the effect of incorporating the European Convention on Human Rights on some aspects of current Scots Law, with discussion of English law where appropriate. ,p> Human Rights and Scots Law considers developments brought about by the Scotland Act 1998, the Human Rights Act 1998, the European Convention on Human Rights, the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Scotland) Act 2000. An ideal introduction to the subject for law students, this book provides much needed coverage of what is an important and expanding area of the law in Scotland.
