Abstract

This project was funded by the Lord Chancellor’s Department over 24 months. This research project assessed the workload, case-processing, resource costs and other effects of the Human Rights Act 1998 for courts. It was planned as a ‘before and after’ study, examining the expectations as anticipated ahead of implementation and the actual effects afterwards. The project provided information to assist Government, the courts as they both prepared for and responded to the introduction of the particular provisions of the Act.

Keywords: Human Rights Act, court administration
