Judiciary & Human Rights Archive
The Unit’s research in this area can be divided into three phases. From 1996 to 2000 we played a formative role in developing different models for the Human Rights Act 1998 and its enforcement. We then played a similar role in the thinking which led to the creation of the new Supreme Court. Finally, we worked closely with the judiciary in thinking how they manage their affairs since they became a much more independent and separate branch of government under the Constitutional Reform Act 2005.
