Text, Cases and Materials on Public Law and Human Rights aims to provide the reader with a comprehensive collection of materials placed in the context of a simple, clear narrative which is designed to map on to any UK undergraduate public law course.

Helen Fenwick & Gavin Phillipson's detailed commentary seeks to incorporate questions designed to provoke a critical and sceptical approach to the conventional legal order.

The third edition has been revised and updated to take into account the wealth of developments in this fast-moving subject since publication of the previous edition in 2002, including:-

  • the Serious Organised Crime and Policing Act (SOCAP),
  • the Terrorism Acts 2005 2006, developments in privacy and confidentiality,
  • the developments on powers of arrest since 2003,
  • and the ongoing reform of the House of Lords, as well as the Constitutional Reform Act 2005.
The third edition has also been updated to provide a more integrated treatment of human rights issues.
