Borrie & Lowe is your comprehensive statement of law relating to criminal and civil contempt of court.

The legal landscape within which contempt law is now situated has altered significantly since the mid 1990’s. Fair trial rights, freedom of expression and privacy entitlements all now enjoy constitutional status in domestic law under the Human Rights Act 1998. The difficult task of both Parliament and the courts is to reconcile these sometimes conflicting interests.

Regularly cited in court, Borrie and Lowe: The Law of Contempt is an essential title from the Common Law Series covering the general common law position governing publications interfering with legal proceedings. Written by experts in the field, it looks at the need to reconcile media freedom and fair trials and administration of justice; plus reporting restrictions and access to documentation which is closely bound up with contempt of court.

Substantially revised, new chapters have been added to take into account the Human Rights Act 1998, the Children Young Persons Act 1933, Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999, Civil Procedure Rules, alternative approaches to prejudicial publicity and how it impacts on different sets of proceedings and recent common law and statutory developments.

The leading authority in its field, Borrie and Lowe: The Law of Contempt contains the full text of the Contempt of Court Act 1981 and groundbreaking cases concerning section 10 regarding journalists’ privilege of nondisclosure of sources.
