Bradley, Ewing and Knight Constitutional and Administrative Law, 18th edition is the latest version of one of the UK's best-known textbooks in law, offering you unique expert analysis coming from a team of leading figures in the field.

This comprehensive text reflects the framework of contemporary constitutional and administrative or public law modules. It provides unrivalled detail and a range of knowledge in its field, by dividing the study into four parts: i) the core principles of the constitution, ii) the institutions of government, iii) civil liberties and human rights, and iv) judicial review and legal accountability of government.

The organisation and structure of the textbook make it relevant for multiple modules, whether you are studying a general, Year 1 course or a more advanced course on Civil Liberties, Human Rights, and Administrative Law. This latest edition provides you with a detailed understanding of the key, essential cases that have influenced UK's constitution via a range of extended summaries, prompting individual reflection and group discussion in class. As it continues to evolve, reflecting the major changes in the field, this textbook is the definitive guide on all aspects of the constitution and an essential tool for the students who intend to practice the relevant fields in law.
