Constitutional and Administrative Law (Public Law) is a dynamic and challenging area of law which has an impact on all of our lives. Whenever a government is elected, a new piece of legislation is passed or a citizen's rights are abused, it is Public Law which provides the legal framework within which government and administration functions. Hilaire Barnett's classic textbook equips students with an understanding of the constitution's past, present and future by analysing and illustrating the political and socio-historical contexts which have shaped the major rules and principles of public law, as well as ongoing constitutional reform.

Key learning features include:

  • introductory chapter overviews outlining the topics and concepts covered;
  • short chapter summaries to distil and reflect upon the main points raised;
  • marginal cross-references which help students to recognise connections across topics;
  • a comprehensive companion website, featuring enhanced coverage and a pathway for further study across a variety of topics
Mapped to the common course outline, this textbook offers full coverage of the Public Law syllabus. Written in a clear and understandable style, Constitutional and Administrative Law is an invaluable resource for every student of Public Law.
