The Law-making Process, Paperback

The Law-making Process Paperback

Part of the Law in Context series


As a critical analysis of the law-making process, this book has no equal.

For more than two decades it has filled a gap in the requirements of law students and others taking introductory courses on the legal system.

It deals with every aspect of the law-making process: the preparation of legislation; its passage through Parliament; statutory interpretation; binding precedent; how precedent works; law reporting; the nature of the judicial role; European Union law; and the process of law reform.

It presents a large number of original texts from a variety of sources - cases, official reports, articles, books, speeches and empirical research studies - laced with the author's informed commentary and reflections on the subject.

This book is a mine of information dealing with both the broad sweep of the subject and with all its detailed ramifications.
