Charlotte Ventham and Georgina Wolfe contribute to new practitioner text, National Security Law (OUP) published today

Charlotte Ventham and Georgina Wolfe are among the expert contributors to OUP’s latest practitioner text: National Security Law, edited by Robert Ward, CBE QC(Hon), Judge Rupert Jones with Assistant Editor, Caroline Stone.

This invaluable new text explains national security law in all its aspects. It collates and explains the core elements of the law, both substantive and procedural and the practical issues which may arise in national security litigation. Charlotte and Georgina’s chapter covers Civil Proceedings: the Main Types of Claims. Other chapters will be of interest to all those working in the national security realm, from Surveillance Powers to Closed Proceedings, Judicial Review to Inquests and Inquiries.

As the publishers say, ‘National security law is now of relevance to a wide range of practising lawyers, judges, legislators, policymakers, oversight bodies, and academic experts working in a variety of legal fields well beyond public law. The highly-specialised nature of the topic make this book a vital text not only for those seeking an overview of the law, but also for experienced practitioners instructed to act in proceedings in which national security issues may arise. The intense media and public scrutiny which accompanies many national security cases will also make this book of interest to a wider audience seeking to understand the legal context of such cases.’
