In this week you have explored some examples of the work of individuals, organisations and institutions that have effected change. Whether you regard them as legal heroes will depend on your viewpoint. The course authors have chosen them to illustrate the wide range of individuals, organisations and institutions who have worked to make a difference and instigate change.
After studying this week you should be able to:
- explain the role of individuals, organisations and institutions in effecting change in the law
- identify examples of how the law has changed in response to the needs of society
- explain the tensions over the rule of the UK Supreme Court.
Next week you will explore the principles of good decision-making and consider on what grounds decisions of public bodies may be effectively challenged. Week 7 explores ways in which you, as an individual, could or, if you wish to do so, should, become involved in making a difference.
You can now go to.
