You will explore one of the most important pillars of liberal-democratic politics and a cornerstone of British constitutionalism: the separation of powers. Discussion will centre on the purpose and value of the separation of powers and the complexity of this given that all branches of the state arguably make and interpret law.
You’ll explore the role of equality within the UK constitutional framework and in particular, considerin whether this principle is a procedural or substantive norm, applying only to rule application or itself constitutive of legal rules. Discussion then focuses on how exactly the state should respect this principle within a modern context.
In this module you will examine the conflict between natural law theory and legal positivism in greater depth. You will consider the practical implications for adopting particular conceptions of law when courts are required to deal with evil laws and evil legal systems. The Nuremburg trials help to locate and ground these implications.
You will prepare for your assigned role as you explore a criminal law case in practice. Whether a witness, the accused, the victim the prosecution lawyer, defence lawyer or judge, all participants have a crucial role to play in the justice system and this provides you with an opportunity to see the law in action, as well as develop oratory skills.
