Public Law offers a fresh and distinctive approach to the subject. Covering in detail all the topics fundamental to undergraduate courses, this essential text presents a sophisticated and coherent analysis of the doctrines and institutions of public law. Throughout, this analysis is integrated with explanation of the wider socio-political context in which the constitution operates.

Three key themes run throughout the book and help you to approach the subject in a structured and accessible way that aids deeper understanding of the subject. The key themes are:

- The significance of executive power and the challenge of ensuring that those who exercise such power are held to account;
- The shift from a political towards a legal constitution and the implications of this change; and
- The increasingly 'multi-layered' character of the UK constitution

Engaging, clear, and focused fully on what you need, Public Law is the perfect guide to this challenging and fascinating subject.
