The Law and Parliament is a collection of essays by leading constitutional and parliamentary experts on issues that are at the core of current debate about the changing British constitution and the sometimes difficult relationships between government and law.
The book deals with matters of intense topical debate including the incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights and the implications of the Human Rights Act 1998, the establishment of a new Scottish Parliament, ways in which the courts impinge upon the law of Parliament and vice versa and the Nolan Report. It also examines the position of lawyers as members of the two Houses of Parliament and looks at the mechanism through which Parliament obtains legal advice.
