Butterworths Human Rights Cases
Prof. Diego Rodriguez-Pinzon is Correspondent for the Americas of the Butterworths Human Rights Cases-Lexis Nexis since 1996. Butterworths Human Rights Cases is a major reporting series, which monitors developments in the protection of human rights and freedoms across a wide range of jurisdictions. It reports, in full text, those decisions which will be of particular interest to lawyers, judges, practitioners and non-governmental organizations. It publishes leading human rights decisions from international and national courts and tribunals that make a significant contribution to the way in which a particular right or freedom is interpreted or applied. The series guarantees a genuinely global perspective via its international network of correspondents and it has been designed along the same lines as the renowned All England Law Reports. It is currently comprised of all the bound volumes in the series since its inception, as well as the annual service comprising ten issues and two bound volumes.
This publication is the result of the adoption by the United Kingdom of the Human Rights Act in 1998. The Human Rights Act incorporated the European Convention of Human Rights into British domestic law and created the need to have a source of selected human rights cases from high courts and international tribunals from around the world. The Editor-in-Chief of the series is Lord Lester of Herne Hill, QC, President of Interights, the International Centre for the Legal Protection of Human Rights.
