Traveller legal experts release latest edition of Gypsy and Traveller Law book
Lawyers and Traveller legal experts have released the third edition of the go-to bible for anyone wanting to know more about Gypsy and Traveller law and legal issues.
Gypsy and Traveller Law is the key reference work for lawyers and advisers working with Gypsies and Travellers and an essential guide for local authorities on their duties to the travelling community and the social and legal implications of failure to fulfil these obligations. It brings together the areas of law affecting the Travelling community and it is the only guide to cover accommodation needs such as planning, site provision, homelessness and eviction as well as other issues impacting on the day to day lives of Gypsies and Travellers such as education, health care, benefits and race discrimination.
It is also the first comprehensive work on the new mobile homes legislation.
Edited by Traveller legal experts and lawyers Marc Willers QC and Chris Johnson, and their co-authors Dr Angus Murdoch, Sharon Baxter, Stephen Cottle, David Watkinson, Tim Jones, Mike McIlvaney, Tessa Buchanan, and Owen Greenhall, the third edition of this text book published by Legal Action Group (LAG) is now finally available from: https://www.lag.org.uk/shop/book-title/201288/gypsy-and-traveller-law
It balances straight-forward, practical advice with comprehensive coverage of the statutes, regulations, guidance, circulars and a rapidly developing body of case-law.
This is the key reference work for lawyers and advisers working with Gypsies and Travellers and an essential guide for local authorities on their duties to the Travelling community and the social and legal implications of failure to fulfil these obligations. Gypsy and Traveller Law also aims to empower Gypsies and Travellers to challenge injustice and vindicate their rights.
