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
