Public Law is an ideal choice for all students looking for a comprehensive yet accessible textbook on this area of law, as its clear writing style, accessible tone, and focus on modern case law help bring the subject to life.

The book covers the key institutions, concepts, and legal rules of the United Kingdom’s constitutional system, with the chapters arranged around four subjects: the foundations of the constitutional system; Constitutional Law; Administrative Law; and human rights. The book’s central theme is that of state power, and the relationship between the state and the citizen.

Co-authored by Michael Doherty and Noel McGuirk, the third edition has been revised to reflect recent key developments in Public Law. It now extensively explores, in addition to several other key chapter updates, the unfolding impact of Brexit, the 2019 General Election, changes in devolution across England, Scotland, and Wales, and the 2020 Coronavirus Act. Clearly written and easy to use, Public Law enables students to fully engage with the topic and gain a profound understanding of this fundamental, exciting area.
