English Public Law & The Common Law Of Europe
Author: Dr. Mads Andenas
Publication date: 15/12/1998
Topics Covered :
Is English law in the process of being reformed according to the principles of European law?
Can different rules for two (or more) jurisdictions be upheld by English courts in the long run?
This book, with contributions from leading public lawyers, is an extension of an SPTL seminar at the Centre of European Law, King's College in 1997. Its concern is with the convergence of the legal traditions of the United Kingdom and the emerging Common Law of Europe, with focus on public law and review of administrative action by courts in the United Kingdom. At a time when domestic and European law is becoming increasingly blurred, the concern is both with the influence of European Law on the development of common law doctrines (and the influence the other way) and with the more direct application of general principles of European Community Law and European Human Rights Law.
