Beginning Human Rights Law by Howard Davis

Whether you're new to higher education, coming to legal study for the first time or just wondering what Human Rights Law is all about, Beginning Human Rights Law is the ideal introduction to help you hit the ground running. Starting with the basics and an overview of each topic, it will help you come to terms with the structure, themes and issues of the subject so that you can begin your Human Rights module with confidence. Adopting a clear and simple approach with legal vocabulary explained in a detailed glossary, Howard Davis breaks the subject of Human Rights Law down using practical everyday examples to make it understandable for anyone, whatever their background. Diagrams and flowcharts simplify complex issues, important cases are identified and explained and on-the- spot questions help you recognise potential issues or debates within the law so that you can contribute in classes with confidence. Beginning Human Rights Law is an ideal first introduction to the subject for LLB, GDL or ILEX and especially international students, those enrolled on distance learning courses or on other degree programmes.


There is much food for thought throughout this excellent primer on where we are and where we are going with the issue of human rights in the 21st century . Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
