This chapter discusses and attempts to define civil liberties. Although there have been a number of books written about the subject, these have seemingly failed to provide a working definition of civil liberties. The discussion also talks about how civil liberties are protected in British law, the principle of legality and its requirements, the role of parliament, the paradox of parliamentary sovereignty, and common law.
