Jonathan Sumption – Law in a Time of Crisis – What is the right relationship between the law and politics, judges and politicians?
Brexit, the possible break-up of the UK, pandemics – this is a country in crisis. In crises the law sets the boundaries of what the Government can and should do. But in a country without a written constitution such as the United Kingdom, the precise limits between legal obligation and convention can be hazy. What are the limits of law in politics? What is the relationship between law and the constitution? Is having a constitution a hindrance or a help in a time of crisis?
