Recap of Term 1
Answering Exam questions!
Why, according to Montesquieu, is the separation of powers important? To what extent are the legislative, executive and judicial institutions in the UK separate from one another? (2017)
Critically discuss the following statement: “The gradual devolution of powers in the UK will necessarily lead to a federal constitution.” (2017)
"The meaning of Parliamentary Sovereignty was fundamentally altered by the outcome of the Factortame case. The case truly had a revolutionary effect within the UK constitution."
Critically analyse this statement (2016)
Assess the relevance of the orthodox theory of Parliamentary Sovereignty in the UK constitution today. In your answer, take account of the probable exit of the UK from the European Union (2017)
Critically discuss whether the UK Constitution can be said to subscribe to a formal conception of the rule of law, or a substantive one (2015)
