Dr Jeff King, UCL Laws
The UK government intends to replace the Human Rights Act with a new 'British Bill of Rights'. However, any change to existing human rights law promises to be a complex and difficult project. Reform of the HRA has the potential to impact upon devolution, as well as on the UK's relationship with its European partners. It also risks generating greater legal complexity, and may dilute rights protection. This seminar will epxlore the current state of play and consider the past, present asnd future of the HRA.
