Scotland's constitution

£19.99

Product description

Scotland's Constitution: Law and Practice is a clear, comprehensive account of the Scottish dimension of constitutional law within its UK and European context. It describes and analyses constitutional arrangements while integrating that analysis with a general background to constitutional law and the UK institutions which have a continuing relevance for the government of Scotland. This highly regarded text considers law-making powers for Scotland, the legislative process at Westminster and at Holyrood, the accountability and scrutiny of government, the independence of the judiciary and the role of the courts in interpreting and adjudicating upon constitutional and administrative law questions.
The second edition has been fully updated throughout and includes a wholly new chapter, entitled Citizen and State, covering important recent developments in human rights and civil liberties. Account is also taken of the work of the Calman Commission, the current Scottish government's 'National Conversation' and developments in the House of Lords and the Supreme Court. Further new material relating to data protection and freedom of information, elections and the reform of the tribunals system has been included.
