Taking a unique critical approach, this book explores the main topics in UK public law from a range of underexplored perspectives and amplifies the voices of scholars who are underrepresented in the field. As such, it represents a much-needed alternative or complement to traditional textbooks in public law.

Including insights from a diverse list of contributors, the book:

• Enriches students’ understanding of the dynamics that emerge within public law;

• Highlights the impact of historical and societal inequities on public law norms;

• Demonstrates the ways in which those norms may impact minorities and perpetuate inequality.

With most chapters written by underrepresented or minoritized persons in the field, this text offers students a more critical, rich and insightful approach to public law.

Se-shauna Wheatle is an Associate Professor of Public Law at Durham Law School, Durham University.

Elizabeth O’Loughlin is Assistant Professor in Public Law and Human Rights at Durham Law School, Durham University.
