Example text

5. If the common law and equity conflict, the common law prevails. 1 Legislation You should be aware that lawyers often use the terms ‘Act’, ‘statute’ and ‘legislation’ interchangeably. A statute is a document containing the laws made by Parliament. Parliament consists of the Queen, the House of Lords and the House of Commons. Parliament is the originator of all legislation. All Acts of Parliament (note that we use an upper-case ‘A’ for Act of Parliament; we never use a lower-case ‘a’ when we mean legislation) consist of formally enacted rules dealing with a particular subject-matter and are broken down into sections for ease of reference (for example, s2 of the Homicide Act 1957).

8 European Convention on Human Rights It is easy to confuse the European Union (formerly the EEC) with the Council of Europe, but the two things are completely different and it is the Council of Europe that introduced and now governs the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). It is perhaps easy to understand why the two entities are confused: they are both ‘European’ institutions and they were both created as a result of reaction to the Second World War, but the ECHR shows states’ commitment to basic human rights and fundamental freedoms rather than political or economic integration with each other (the EU).

In 1986, the Single European Act established a single market across the member states and in 1993 the European Economic Community became the European Community (EC) by means of the Maastricht Treaty (the Treaty on European Union). This Treaty also created a new body – the European Union (EU). The EU was a far larger body than the EC. The EU included the EC and it dealt with common foreign and security policies as well as co-operation between states on criminal matters. For our purposes, all of the law emanating from the EC and the EU shall be referred to as ‘EU law’ because under the Lisbon Treaty, the EC ceased to exist.
