In Lord Sumption and the Limits of the Law leading public law scholars reflect on the nature and limits of the judicial role and its implications for human rights protection and democracy.

The starting point for this reflection is Lord Sumption’s lecture, ‘The Limits of the Law’, and, spurred on by this, the contributors discuss questions including the scope and legitimacy of judicial law-making, the interpretation of the European Convention on Human Rights, and the continuing significance and legitimacy, or otherwise, of the European Court of Human Rights.

Lord Sumption ends the volume with a substantial paper engaging with the responses to his lecture.
