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