PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Publishing in the Scottish Universities Law Institute series this is the most in-depth Scottish treatment of Constitutional law. Constitutional Law provides the first complete account of the constitutional framework within which the government of Scotland has been carried on since devolution in 1999, and of the governance of Scotland as it stands in the wake of September’s historic referendum on Scottish independence.

This is a very different book from its predecessor in this series, J D B Mitchell’s Constitutional Law, which was first published almost fifty years ago. Its aim is to provide an authoritative account of both the new Scottish constitution and the contemporary governance of Scotland. It also charts the long march towards ‘accountable’ government in Scotland. After exploring the new Scottish constitution as set out in the Scotland and the Human Rights Acts, it examines the separate Scottish, United Kingdom and European dimensions of the contemporary governance of Scotland. As befits its subject matter, it is written from a Scottish perspective, i.e. from the perspective of someone living in Scotland, rather than the Anglo-centric perspective which inevitably dominates much United Kingdom constitutional writing.
