Human Rights

Since the enactment of the Human Rights Act 1998 into the law of the United Kingdom the purpose of which was to incorporate the rights under the European Convention of Human Rights, all areas of law since that time are subject to it. This means the consideration of the human rights principles feature at every turn and the courts have a duty to ensure they are not breached. An important example is Article 6 which underpins the ‘Right to Fair Trial’.
Therefore, a firm grasp of human rights principles and most importantly their application is absolutely essential and which we consider in relation to all cases.
