    • New edition of this celebrated guide to an important piece of legislation, written by leading experts in the field
    • Provides a clear and concise explanation of how the European Convention and Human Rights Act 1998 work and have been applied by the courts
    • Summarizes the interpretative techniques and procedures that lawyers need to understand to bring a human rights claim
    • Contains a copy of the Human Rights Act 1998 (as amended) and the European Convention for the Protection of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms (as amended)
    • Provides a critique of proposals from the Conservative Party to reduce the protection provided by the Act and the ECHR

    New to this edition

    • Discusses recent ECtHR and domestic decisions over jurisdiction, privacy and prisoners' rights
    • Analyses the importance of the common law protection of rights in light of threats to the Human Rights Act
    • Analyses the relationship between human rights in the EU and the ECHR following the decision of the CJEU on EU accession to the ECHR

    The Blackstone's Guide to the Human Rights Act 1998 provides clear, concise coverage of the operation and application of the Human Rights Act 1998, discussing the successes and failures of the Act and the debate surrounding its possible eventual replacement with a Bill of Rights. 

    The Guide assesses the case law of the European Court and analyses the impact of Convention rights in landmark domestic judgements across a wide range of areas, including terrorism, privacy, discrimination, and criminal law. It explains the interpretive techniques employed by the courts to read legislation compatibly with Convention rights, and maps the UK and Strasbourg courts' divergence in approach to certain areas of human rights protection. It also highlights the aspects of the Act that the courts have not yet clarified. 

    The new edition of this popular Guide considers all relevant developments since the publication of the previous edition. The book contains a copy of the Human Rights Act 1998 as amended, and the European Convention for the Protection of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms.

    The Blackstone's Guide series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislative changes and amendments. Published soon after enactment, they offer expert commentary by leading names on the scope, extent and effects of the legislation, plus a full copy of the Act itself. They offer a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes.

    Readership: Solicitors and barristers working in human rights and wider areas, law teachers, students, local authority users, and media commentators.
