Essential Human Rights Cases 2 ed

By Susan Nash, Mark Furse

Following the introduction of the Human Rights Act 1998, practitioners in all areas of law need to consider the impact of human rights issues on their work. Essential Human Rights Cases is a single source of over 400 summaries of the leading decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, as well as significant English and Commonwealth decisions. This new edition begins with a comprehensive survey of the impact of the incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights into English law. Organized by subject matter, the work is broken down into the following areas: criminal law; immigration, asylum and deportation; families, children and gender; rights of expression and associated issues; and property, commercial and EC law. In addition, discrimination, previously dealt with as a discrete chapter, is now incorporated into various chapters dealing with substantive discrimination law issues.
