The Handbook of Human Rights Law Summary


The Handbook of Human Rights Law: An Accessible Approach to the Issues and Principles by Michael Arnheim

The Human Rights Act of 1998 incorporated into UK law rights and freedoms guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights. Human Rights Law affects everyone, yet it remains the most uncertain and unpredictable of all the branches of law. With hard-edged definitions few and far between, principles tend to be open to a variety of interpretations - a goldmine for some, but a minefield to the unwary. The Handbook of Human Rights Law provides accessible guidance on all areas affected by human rights legislation. The book looks at how to use human rights law (with a chapter identifying practical winning strategies and tactics), while later chapters examine the various Convention rights. The text is peppered throughout with interesting coverage of high profile cases and includes discussion of the issues and principles involved. Case law, examples and question-and-answer discussion sections are included, making this one of the most direct and straightforward titles on human rights law. It is accessible to all, but comprehensive enough to be used by students of law as well as Human Resource Managers and other business people.

The Handbook of Human Rights Law Reviews


"The Handbook of Human Rights Law is a wonderful introduction for anybody interested in the subject, particularly as it relates to British domestic law." Ted Koch, Lawyers Without Borders "His views are somewhat controversial... whether his readers agree or disagree with his views, Arnheim hopes above all that his book will help to demystify the legal profession... Michael Arnheim's new book explores who has really benefited from human rights laws." The Big Issue "This is a fascinating book. The author has managed to translate some of the most dreary legal principles into a lively and interesting read... I found myself absorbed in the twists and turns of these cases, while at the same time learning more about human rights law - the perfect way to do it. If you want an accessible legal/ethical guide to some of the human rights questions of the day, this is the book for you." Personneltoday.com "Michael Arnheim has addressed the practical needs of students and practitioners by setting out a whole chapter of 'winning strategies', together with a number of useful 'question and answer' sections." Solicitors Journal "An excellent summary of many human rights aspects in its easy-to-navigate format." Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Law, Vol 20, No 1 "Packed with case law, examples and useful question-and -answer discussion sections, The Handbook of Human Rights Law is one of the most direct and straightforward titles in human rights law." Commerce and Industry "Will be a popular reference source for those wishing to know how UK courts have deployed the Human Rights Act 1998 when confronted with politically controversial and morally exacting issues...(an)accessible guide" Times Higher Education Supplement
