Judicial Discretion in the House of Lords

David Robertson

Clarendon Press

  • US social scientists are extremely interested in the work of courts, this book looks at the UK situation in a similar way and demonstrates that legal decisions are more important politically than many involved in politics admit
  • This book is topical as it implicitly argues for a Bill of Rights, and its publication will coincide with the introduction of a UK Bill on this subject
  • This is one of only a few books that look at the way legal decisions are made by the Law Lords
