Thoughtful, stimulating and even entertaining ... Lord Sumption s opinion is always worth listening to, even - or especially - if one disagrees with it. Daily Telegraph Time spent on Law in a Time of Crisis is time spent in the company of a brilliant mind considering interesting things The Times Brexit, the independence referendum, the pandemic: the UK is a country in crisis. And, in crises, we turn to the law to set the boundaries of what the government can and should do. However, in a country with no written constitution, what sounds like a simple proposition is in fact anything but. Based on his 2019 Reith lectures, former Supreme Court Judge Jonathan Sumption asks: what are the limits of law in politics? Is not having a constitution a hindrance or help in times of crisis? From referenda to the rise of nationalisms, Law in a Time of Crisis exposes the uses and abuses of legal intervention in British crises - past, present, and potential.
