This is a groundbreaking text which seeks to guide practitioners as to how to spot a PIL point with reference to the key English Statute and case law principles.

Based upon 25 years of experience in acting for and against States before the English Courts at all levels on such matters, the author has set out to demystify PIL and illustrate its increasing significance in English Court litigation.

“This book enables the reader to appreciate the recent application and development of the principles of PIL in this country in the best possible way”

From the Foreword by Lord Phillips of Maltravers Worth, Former President of the UK Supreme Court
