About the Authors
  • The British justice system is an ancient one that has continually evolved to meet modern needs. In this set of three essays, originally presented as the Hamlyn lectures in 2012, Jack Straw reviews some of the most important recent reforms to the system of British justice and suggests key areas in need of further reform. He focuses in particular on the criminal courts, human rights, judicial appointments and the relationship between the UK Parliament, the domestic courts and the European Court of Human Rights. In all three cases, he argues that the British justice system is now in a healthier state than it has been in his lifetime, but that there remains much room – and need – for improvement.

    • The inside story of thirty years of recent law reform in England and Wales
    • Contains unrivalled insights from the author's political career
    • Lawyers in all common law jurisdictions will be interested in the author's argument for greater executive or parliamentary involvement in senior judicial appointment processes
