Poole, Thomas and Shah, Sangeeta (2011) The Law Lords and human rights. Modern law review, 74 (1). pp. 79-105. ISSN 0026-7961
This article presents an empirical analysis of the impact of the Human Rights Act on the House of Lords. Drawing on a database of judgments from 1994 to 2007, changes in judgment-giving behaviour are identified by charting patterns of agreement and dissent across different categories of case. Voting records are also examined in order to identify whether significant differences exist between individual Law Lords in their approach to human rights cases.
