Judicial Reasoning and the Human Rights Act 1998:
The University Of Durham Human Rights Centre began work on a three-year project on Judicial Reasoning, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, in October 2002. The projet was completed in 2005. The Judicial Reasoning project aimed to recognise, in collaboration with judges and practising lawyers, emerging trends and methods of reasoning employed under the Human Rights Act 1998, with a view to identifying the constitutional role the judiciary are assigning to the Act.
