National Security Law textbook published

18th March 2021

Oxford University Press publishes National Security Law, Procedure and Practice today.

Two members of Temple Gardens Chambers have contributed to this new practitioners’ textbook, which provides detailed coverage of UK national security law in one place for the first time.

The book explains the concept of national security, the respective constitutional functions of the various branches of government, and the law relating to the security and intelligence agencies. It describes executive measures that are deployed to disrupt threats to national security and civil proceedings concerning them. It also deals with the criminal law, and the other contexts in which national security issues can arise. It will be an invaluable guide to anyone instructed in cases in which national security issues are involved.
