Judicial power and civil liberties in the United Kingdom.

In the United Kingdom, a few high judges compose the judiciary. They decide on the individual rights of the citizens, within the framework of a limited number of statutes, but without reference to any written constitution or declaration of rights. Long appraised, the common law system of protection of civil liberties has recently shown its limits and inadequacies.

The judiciary, unable to face these challenges through traditional means has considered the possibility of new experiences ; the concept of public law inspires a serious development in the judicial control of governmental decisions ; yet, the judges stick to a certain amount of prejudices connected with their social and mental background. New legislations have been passed through Parliament in the area of civil liberties and there are open arguments on the question of a Bill of Rights in the United Kingdom.
