Public Law: Text, Cases, and Materials combines extracts from key primary and secondary materials with clear explanatory text to provide a complete resource for students of constitutional and administrative law. The book has been carefully structured with the needs of undergraduate students in mind.

Opening with a consideration of basic constitutional principles (in which no previous knowledge is assumed), the authors move on to cover parliamentary supremacy and the concept of responsible government, before closing with extensive consideration of the principles and procedures of judicial review. A wealth of learning features such as thinking points, diagrams, useful notes, summary points and reflective questions provide valuable support for students.

This book is accompanied by a comprehensive Online Resource Centre which contains the following resources: For students: - Updates - Web links - A flashcard glossary of key terms - A timeline of key events For lecturers: - A fully customizable test bank of multiple choice questions with answer feedback
