The Human Rights Act 1998 affects almost every area of the law. Human Rights provides authoritative guidance on the implications for the practitioner as well as an account of the constitutional background. Featuring a comprehensive analysis of the ECHR and the Human Rights Act 1998, this book sets out how the Convention affects English law and clearly explains its status, scope and impact.

It clarifies the principles the Strasbourg institutions have adopted in interpreting and applying the Convention, and also covers the most important case law article by article.

  • Focuses on the application of the Human Rights Act in practice
  • Anticipates questions that courts are likely to encounter when giving effect to the Convention through the common law and the Act
  • Considers available remedies and judicial review.
