Public Law provides an up-to-date analysis of the main issues in public law today. The book is comprehensive and covers the major fundamental constitutional reforms introduced since 1997 that have resulted in an unprecedented transformation of the public law of the United Kingdom.

This third edition provides students with a clear understanding of the main areas of public law. There is an extensive bibliography and a list of the key websites to encourage further research. Each chapter has a summary and conclusions with a section on further reading.

The format has been altered to accommodate a student focus in learning about public law. Coverage includes:-

  • Reforms to the House of Lords, the introduction of devolution to Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the introduction of a strategic authority for London with mayoral elections
  • The development of an independent central bank as a precursor to entry into the Euro
  • New legislation including the Data Protection Act 1998, the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the registration of political parties with controls on donations to parties and on national campaign expenditure
  • Changes to the internal workings of local government
