About Legislating for Human Rights

An invaluable compendium of the Parliamentary debates on one of the most far reaching pieces of legislation this century – The Human Rights Act 1998. It is essential reading for those taking cases under the Act or interested in the development of human rights. As well as setting out the Government's intention for each section of the Act in an accessible format,this book is also a good read.

Key issues include: Pepper v Hart statements on interpretation of the Human Rights Act;

Underlying principles of the Human Rights Act


“It is a useful and interesting guide for non-lawyers seeking to identify the underlying principles of the Act and for those legal practitioners and academic who failed to follow the ministerial debate surrounding incorporation, it provides a means of making up for lost ground.” –  Susan Nash, New Law Journal

“The book will be of great use to practitioners working in the field of human rights law
The editors are to be congratulated on the laborious work involved in collecting and selecting the material for the book and for arranging its publication in such a convenient form for use by practising and academic lawyers.
” –  Robert Blackburn, King's College, Journal of Legislative Studies

“This is an essential book for all those who will have to argue about what the Human Rights Act 1998 was intended by Parliament to mean.” –  Kris Gledhill, Lawzone

“This book was an ingenious idea. This collection is likely to prove of great benefit to human rights practitioners.” –  Tim Ward, Barrister, Solicitors' Journal
