Course Description

Public law affects several parts of our day to day lives; this includes, for example, immigration, health, the environment and education. In its most basic terms, the role of public law is to regulate the relationship between the state and individuals. In addition, public law refers to the state’s special powers to run the country; meaning its power to enforce, apply, implement, make, repeal and amend the law. This area of law is also often referred to as constitutional (the law which founds the state's key institutions and provides its framework) and administrative (the law which provides individual public authorities and bodies with their legal duties and power) law. As there exists an unequal relationship of power between the state and individuals, public law is especially important because it provides checks and balances. This means that this area of law ensures that the government does not abuse its power over individuals and that they use their power in a fair and proper manner. In modern states, constitutional law lays out the foundations of the state. Above all, it postulates the supremacy of law in the functioning of the state – the rule of law. Secondly, it sets out the form of government – how its different branches work, how they are elected or appointed, and the division of powers and responsibilities between them. Traditionally, the basic elements of government are the executive, the legislature and the judiciary. And thirdly, in describing what are the basic human rights, which must be protected for every person, and what further civil and political rights citizens have, it sets the fundamental borders to what any government must and must not do .Public interest lawyers perform a number of different roles and tasks to promote access to justice. Some common activities include offering free legal services, providing community education, or undertaking law reform and policy work. The promotion of access to justice is not the exclusive province of lawyers. In fact,  endeavors to implement social and legal change are most effective when lawyers and other professionals collaborate. Public interest law therefore provides a fantastic opportunity for lawyers and law students to cooperate and work with other professionals in multidisciplinary endeavors. Example types of work for a public interest lawyer: Community Legal Education, Law Reform and Policy Work, Strategic Litigation, Campaigning, Clinical Legal Education, Legal Advice, Casework, Legal Writing.
