Joshua Rozenberg’s latest book is an introduction to judicial activism. The author discusses some of the most challenging contemporary cases – bookended by Miller No 1 and Miller No 2 – and asks readers to decide when judges should develop the law and when the courts should defer to parliament.
The panel will consider these questions in the light of the government’s proposals for constitutional reform. Might these lead to a shift in the balance of power between judges and ministers?
Copies of the book will be on sale at a reduced price. They can also be pre-ordered (at a 20% discount) here: https://bristoluniversitypress.co.uk/enemies-of-the-people
*UPDATE (PLEASE READ)* (POSTED 30.03.20)
This seminar will not now be taking place on 21 April. You will understand why. We are hoping to hold the event later in the year.
The event would have marked the launch of a book by Joshua Rozenberg called Enemies of the People? How Judges Shape Society. You may be interested to know that the book will still be published as planned.
Because of current uncertainties, Bristol University Press are allowing the book to be distributed ahead of the formal publication date. Your local bookshop may be able to post you a copy. And the book is currently available direct from the publishers at a 20% discount or 35% if you sign up to their mailing list.
The printed and electronic versions are also available from Amazon.
This event is fully booked - Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to a waiting list
