The Constitutional Context of Legal Method

  • Ian McLeod
Part of the Macmillan Law Masters book series


One of the major concerns of legal method is to identify the scope of the courts’ power to develop the law. It follows from this that, although the study of constitutional law is a substantial exercise in its own right, the study of legal method must include at least an overview of the legal basis of the constitution as the foundation of any real understanding. This chapter, therefore, considers the legal framework of the British constitution generally, while Chapters 5, 6 and 7 consider various aspects of the European Community context, and Chapter 8 deals with the growing importance of an awareness of the place of human rights within legal method.
