View: 4992Following the introduction of the Human Rights Act (1998), human rights principles will for the first time be applicable to commercial law in the UK. This work guides practitioners clearly through the implications, explaining both general principles and their day-to-day impact on specific areas of commercial law. It focuses on both the practical and theoretical issues arising from the Act and identifies arguments - both good and bad - which lawyers can expect to encounter in the early years of the Act's implementation. It explains the Act's impact on individual areas of practice - including competition, planning, tax, and employment law, and advises how to use human rights arguments in litigation.
