Human Rights & Judicial Review

The Human Rights Act is a UK law passed in 1998. The human rights that are contained within this law are based on the articles of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). The Act 'gives further effect' to rights and freedoms guaranteed under the European Convention. Therefore, the Human Rights Act prohibits torture and inhuman treatment in all circumstances (Article 3) and in general protects:

  • The right to life (Article 2)
  • The right to liberty (Article 5)
  • The right to a fair trial (Article 6)
  • The right to privacy and family life (Article 8)
  • Freedom of thought, religion and belief (Article 9)
  • Freedom of speech and peaceful protest (Article 10)
  • Freedom from discrimination (Article 14)

This means Government institutions must treat everyone equally with fairness, dignity and respect. We can advise and assist if you or someone you know has been denied their human rights.
