As the pace of legislative change at all levels continues to accelerate, it becomes increasingly difficult for practitioners to know how to follow and apply, and sometimes influence or challenge, the legislation that is relevant to their clients in every area of the law.

A highly practical resource, Craies provides clear and concise answers to the most common questions users of legislation have. It aims to be an essential everyday guide covering primary legislation, subordinate legislation and devolved legislation, as well as EU legislation. Craies is relied upon by practitioners in all fields, and is regularly cited in the higher courts.

The text includes chapters interpreting:

  • Drafting principles for legislation
  • Different forms of quasi-legislation
  • The procedures for the making and enacting of primary and secondary legislation
  • The principles of interpretation
  • This new 11th edition is entirely up-to-date and provides essential and current commentary in fast-changing times.

Written by Daniel Greenberg, Counsel for Domestic Legislation in the House of Commons, it tells the latest episode in a number of long-running stories, including the Human Rights Act, Henry VIII Powers, Pepper v Hart, the slip rule in Inco Europe and many others. Recent cases of importance in the field of legislation (including Public Law Project v Lord Chancellor) as well as important political developments in the fields of devolution and elsewhere (including the Strathclyde Report on the primacy of the House of Commons).

Daniel Greenberg is a barrister who specialises in legislation. He formerly wrote laws as a member of the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel and is now a consultant, author and teacher.
He is in-house Parliamentary Counsel in the Parliamentary Team at Berwin Leighton Paisner, advising on statutory interpretation, the legislative process and the machinery of government. He also has a legislative drafting practice for legislation in the UK and abroad.
