Text, Cases and Materials on Public Law and Human Rights by Helen Fenwick

Text, Cases and Materials on Public Law and Human Rights integrates a diverse and contemporary collection of cases and materials with an authoritative narrative commentary from two leading academics in the fields of public law and human rights. The text intersperses extracts from leading cases, academic commentary and parliamentary and governmental material to produce an all-encompassing student companion to constitutional, administrative and UK human rights law.

This third edition has been fully updated and includes coverage of: the Governance of Britain reform package and the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010, the Constitutional Reform Act and the new Supreme Court, the Serious Organised Crime and Policing Act 2005 and the impact of anti-terrorism legislation on the rule of law and police powers. There is comprehensive coverage of the Jackson case, Bancoult and the royal prerogative, the 2008 White Paper on Lords reform, the impact of the Parliamentary Standards Act 2009 and the Kelly Report on parliamentary privilege, and of the Wright Committee Reforms on the Commons. There is in-depth discussion of the latest leading cases in judicial review and key decisions under the Freedom of Information Act. Furthermore, the book includes extensive coverage and analysis of a range of recent developments in the human rights' field, including the key Human Rights Act cases of Belmarsh, Re P, Huang and YL and the Strasbourg decisions in the Marper (DNA) case and A v UK on detention without trial; the Austin and Laporte decisions on public order in the House of Lords are discussed together with the latest leading cases on freedom of expression. The possibilities of repeal of the Human Rights Act and of the future introduction of a British Bill of Rights are given consideration.
