Human Rights Law provides trainee and practising solicitors with a comprehensive overview of human rights law and the sources of human rights protection in Ireland. The book lays out the foundations of human rights law and considers the protections afforded at national, European and international level, charting the integration of the ECHR into Irish law and the role of the UN. Featuring chapters on due process, liberty, freedom of expression, equality and the right to life and bodily integrity, it offers a unique discussion of key human rights from the perspectives of Irish, ECHR and EU law. Useful guidance on refugee and immigration law is also provided. This fourth edition has been fully updated to cover all recent legislative changes and case law. The manual's thorough approach and practical focus make it an essential reference not only for trainee solicitors on the Professional Practice Courses, but also for students, academics and practitioners in the field.
