The constitution of the UK is extremely dynamic and developing incrementally through changes in relationships with Europe, devolution to Scotland, Wales and the regions and human rights legislation. This module will help you to analyse and challenge some of the basic tenets of the constitution of the UK. Developments in judicial review will enable you to understand the relationship of judges and the government and the impact of this relationship on both the law and the state. 
This module will develop your analytical skills and your ability to understand the role of public law which although complex and technical allows for exciting discussion on issues which are both current and shifting.

This module is one of the seven foundations of legal knowledge required by the JASB of the Law Society and Bar Council and it is therefore compulsory for all students who wish to progress onto the Vocational Stage of Training to become a Solicitor or Barrister.
