The primary purpose of this book is to demonstrate the scope that already exists for using international human rights law in English courts, regardless of its status as 'incorporated' or 'unincorporated'. Murray Hunt addresses directly what are commonly supposed to be the theoretical obstacles to using human rights law in English courts and aims to raise awareness of the extent to which these have now fallen away in light of recent developments in English judicial practice. The book was first published in hardback in March 1997.

This excellent book will be welcomed by all lawyers who are interested in administrative and constitutional law, academics, practitioners and judges alike. It is written in a lucid style; and its arguments, some of which are provocative and controversial, are all marshalled with great clarity. The Hon. Sir John Dyson Judicial Review Jan 07 His work will make an important contribution towards educating those judges and lawyers who need to learn the language of legal rights to make the new Bill of Rights work effectively. David Pannick The Times Law Section 2002 It is a work that will repay repeated study...Using Human Rights Law announces Murray Hunt as a potentially important player in the future development of English public law. Ian Loveland Public Law 2002 [a book] from which all concerned with the development of public law, whether as judges, advocates or academics, will undoubtedly derive great benefit. Martin Loughlin Modern Law Review 2002 ...important and meticulously researched...The incorporation of the ECHR, together with Scottish devolution and further European integration, bring unprecedented challenges which will test the boundaries of the English legal imagination.
