The Foundations and Future of Public Law: Essays in Honour of Paul Craig – eBook PDF
Public law in the EU and UK has undergone seismic changes over the past forty years: development and membership of the EU, the Human Rights Act, devolution, the strengthening of public law skill within the judiciary, the globalization of public law, and the increased interaction between the academy, barristers, judiciary, public interest groups, and legislatures have transformed the public law landscape. Commentators spend ample time at the frontiers of the subject, replying rapidly to new developments and offering guidance to scholars, legislators, and judges for future directions. In these circumstances, there is hardly a chance to reflect upon the implications of these changes for the basics of public law and how those fundamentals relate to one another.
In The Foundations and Future of Public Law, (PDF), prominent figures in UK and EU public law address this lacuna. Inspired by the scope, depth, and ambition of the work of Paul Craig, Professor of English Law at Oxford University, the emphasis of this collection is upon exploring and reflecting upon six basics of public law and the interrelationship between them: legislation, theory, case law, institutions, process, and constitutions. 978-0198845249, 978-0192583901
“This is a stimulating and interesting collection of essays. It would be possible to involve in an article-length response to each of the chapters. The space at my disposal does not do fairness to the quality of the research, argumentation and presentation of the authors … Craig should be pleased
that his thoughts and work have generated such a praiseworthy response in this publication.” — Patrick J Birkinshaw, Emeritus Professor of Public Law, University of Hull, Amicus Curiae
“… the ebook includes a diversity of subjects, but something that marks it out from other edited collections is the way its variety does not detract from its cohesiveness. Instead, Craig’s scholarship offers an inspiration that pervades the ebook, resulting in a number of common subjects that bind
the individual chapters together. The ebook certainly achieves what its editors hoped, that is a collection of papers rising to the scholarly challenge set by Craig’s work.” — Julian R Murphy, Melbourne Law School, Australian Law Journal
