Much writing on the relationship between politics and law has been overwhelmingly theoretical. We know relatively little about the practical, day-to-day impact of law on politicians, their legal advisers and civil servants. Yet policy can be given effect through law; legislation often has partisan, political, pragmatic aims, and legal rules and procedures can exercise unwelcome constraints on politicians when developing and implementing policies. How do lawyers in government see their roles? How does politics affect the drafting of legislation or the making of policy? This volume begins to answer these and other questions in a number of settings. Contributors include former departmental legal advisers, drafters of legislation, law reformers, judges and academics, who focus on what actually happens when law meets politics in government. 'I do not hesitate to recommend this book, both to participants in political and legal process and also the interested general reader: it contains a great deal of first-class material and is a welcome addition to the literature in this area'. Saira Salimi, Statute Law Review 'One of the most noticeable features of this collection - and perhaps the main source of its originality and diversity - is the impressive range of contributors. Overall, this is a terrific collection of essays [which will] be of value to anyone interested in the 'stuff' of law and politics. Even those well versed in that 'stuff' will surely find some thought-provoking new perspectives here'. Joseph
