Jun 26, 2016One of the things I liked about Britain's being in the EU was having an extra layer of legal appeal that lay above the level of the nation-state. This is of course exactly what many anti-Europe campaigners hate most, but from my experience of Europe these myriad rulings about flammable duvets and transporting hazardous substances, all hashed out quietly by experts far away from the media pressure of any particular country, were generally sensible and politically unpartisan.
Dec 28, 2015The first thing we do, letâ€™s kill all the lawyers
Oct 11, 2014I thought I was reading a worthy but dull book on jurisprudence. A few hours of tedium were surely ahead but I would emerge a better person, educated by one of the finest legal minds on important issues of legal philosophy.
Aug 07, 2011the late bingham writes so sensitively about the rule of law, that you really don't need to have ever studied the law to appreciate this book. very accessible and illuminating.
Jan 02, 2016In May 2015, the British PM David Cameron famously said
Feb 14, 2010There are countries in the world where all judicial decisions find favour with the powers that be, but they are probably not places where any of us would wish to live.
Mar 18, 2017This book confirmed that I want to study Law at university.
May 29, 2015Picked up this gem of a book today and began to skim. Skimming turned to deep reading, which turned to page-turning fixation. That says a lot for a book mainly concerned with jurisprudence.
May 22, 2014This book begins:
Dec 28, 2013The Rule of Law is one of the fundamental principles of a democratic society and the foundation of a civilized society. In this short concise book, Tom Bingham first examines the historical origins of the rule -- such as the Magna Carta 1215, Habeas corpus, Petition of Right 1628, Sir Matthew Hale's resolutions and the Universal Declaration of Human RIghts. He then advances eight Rule of law understood in western democracies today.
May 11, 2013Humbling. Beautifully written, as you would expect from one of the finest legal minds this country has known.
Apr 08, 2013Tremendous exposition on the development of the rule of law over the rule of man. I highly recommend this book!
Jun 17, 2013I wish The Rule of Law by Bingham was written by an Arab judge for the Arab World and read carefully by all Arabs but this book is universal
Feb 16, 2011Acts as an excellent primer on the relationship between human rights and the law.
Aug 26, 2017Everyone's heard the term 'Rule of Law', but very few people really understand what it stands for.
Oct 07, 2018Enlightening. Anyone attempting to understand what really drives fairness & justice in society ought to read this.
Jun 08, 2011A wonderful introduction to the fundamentals of law. Written in a way that allows a layman or beginner (I am both when it comes to law) to understand the basic principles that have shaped the law and how it has evolved into the complex and wonderful beast it is today
Mar 22, 2015So, so excellent!!! Pretty uncompromising about how the UK is doing in upholding rule of law values as well as making a great case for what the concept should include. The third part was quite weighted to UK/USA comparison but that was actually more helpful than not. And the section on parliamentary sovereignty got a grasp of the balance of what was desirable and why its not working right now. So good!!
Jan 20, 2012A book full of facts that are cleary written with opinions from one of England's top judges this book was an inspiring read which covered one of my favourite topics, the magna carta. All in all a great book only down side is that after a while I lost my motivation to read it and therefore, skimmed the last couple of pages. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning more about the rule of law.
Feb 10, 2016This is quite simply the most accessible and clearly written book on the law, and how it is applied to modern Britain. The sections on human rights law and response to terrorism in the post 2001 word are particularly apposite and essential reading
Oct 17, 2010If you think playing it by the rules is all that matters, then you should read Bingham's "The Rule of Law". It will change the way you think about the rules...asking yourself : What is Law ? A must read for lawyers and paralegals.Or anyone else who thinks law for Dummies helps them to live a better life.
Jul 22, 2012A very British take on the rule of law, but nonetheless a great book written by the former Law Lord and advocate of the rule of the law. It shows why civilization needs laws, and how this principle matters and works as a cornerstone of a stable society. Certainly a worthwhile read, not only for lawyers and politicians.
Mar 12, 2016Perfect. This book is just perfect.
Oct 29, 2013An easy read on the whole, challenging at times but if it wasn't, it wouldn't be a book about the law! Engaging and opened my mind to areas of law other than the traditional criminal, civil contract etc Well worth a read, and even has bits history lovers would like!
Sep 03, 2010Very good guide to what is meant by the often used but rarely explained phrase, 'rule of law'. Particularly enjoyed the section on terrorism and the rule of law - an excellent, well reasoned discourse on a highly emotive topic.
