    Full text not available from this repository.


    Neville Harris is the leading education law academic in the UK and his work has been critical in establishing education law as a distinct category within the academic curriculum. In many respects this book ‘picks up the story’ that he began in his earlier monograph Education and the Law: Regulation and Consumerism (Sweet and Maxwell, 1993). There the focus was on the extensive reforms introduced by the post-1979 Conservative governments which dramatically restructured the legal framework established by the Education Act 1944. In this book, while the historical background is not overlooked, the focus is primarily on the subsequent reforms of post-1997 Labour governments. And such is the centrality of law in this area (and the extent – vast amounts of legislation and over 100 statutory instruments a year!) that the book, in effect, provides a critical audit of the education policies of New Labour.
