about this item

Pivoting on Lord Sumption's 2013 lecture "The Limits of Law," which opens the volume, British law scholars examine the proper constitutional role of the judge by considering questions about relative institutional competence, the nature of law-making and legal reasoning in general, and rights adjudication in particular. Among the topics are Sumption's assumptions, judicial law-making and the living instrumentalism of the European Court of Human Rights, three wrong turns in Lord Sumption's conception of law and democracy, and reflections from private and public law. The 11 papers are from a law and constitutional government conference held in Oxford during October 2014. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
