Constitutional Law of Ireland (3rd Edition)

Michael Forde , David Leonard (Authors)

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

Since the previous edition of this book, changes have taken place with Ireland's Articles of the Constitution, including challenges to the Articles, referenda, new legislation, and judicially-considered cases.

This third edition is almost completely re-written as a result of the tumultuous changes in Irish constitutional law. It brings the reader completely up to date with developments in the last decade. There is far greater emphasis on the role of the EU than in the previous edition. Significant developments in other jurisdictions are noted - especially in the UK, Canada, and Australia, as well as at the European Court of Human Rights. In particular, the book deals with institutions of national governance and their inter-relationships mainly with Ireland's legislature, the executive, and the courts. Author Michael Forde - an accomplished constitutional law author and practitioner - offers everything the reader needs to know on this complex subject. Topics included: the state and its authority
