About the Author

Ian Leigh and Roger Masterman are, respectively, Professor of Law and Lecturer in Law at Durham University. Both are members of the Durham Human Rights Centre.


The breadth of the project is the book's main strength. It provides an excellent one-stop-shop for those wishing to obtain a detailed overview and evaluation of the Act, of its impact upon English law, and of academic commentary...Leigh and Masterman succeed in their objective of providing an excellent account of the extent to which Convention rights have been brought home in the first decade of the Human Rights Act. -- Alison Young * The Cambridge Law Journal, Vol 68 (2) *
The writing is lucid. The authors are experienced and knowledgeable in the field, and while their work is scholarly, the text is not overburdened. -- Gina Clayton * The Journal of Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Law, Vol 23, No 2 *
...[includes] a wide-ranging survey of the Act's effect on private law covering privacy, contract, employment and property law. -- Elizabeth Prochaska * The Law Quarterly Review, Vol 125 *
Making Rights Real should appeal to a range of audiences as it contains an accessible outline of the HRA and discusses the most important cases that have arisen in the subsequent jurisprudence, both of which will be illustrative for new students of human rights law in the UK, and yet it simultaneously manages to develop more scholarly ideas of constitutional reform that will be of interest in a more academic forum. -- Hayley Smith * Justice Journal, Issue 5, Number 2 *
