Reveals the inside story of how Acts of Parliament are drafted and made law:-
  • Presents a lively account of how Acts of Parliament are drafted and made law, structured around three main themes – people, processes and problems
  • Goes beyond standard textbook accounts to give an insider perspective on how the system actually works in practice
  • Written in a lively, polemical style by a “thought leader” in the area, highlighting current problems and suggesting innovative ideas for reform
  • Will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students of law, policy and politics, those involved in the preparation and practice of legislation, or any reader with an interest in British Government
