UK Government: master the three branches of government

UK government and its three branches are at the heart of the political system. This course will look at the history and nature of the Constitution, along with the three main branches of government. You will explore the role and structure of parliament, the principles that guide the Executive in their decision-making, and the ability for the judiciary to hold the other two to account.

Many important debates about the political system will emerge, such as the importance of the House of Lords, the power of the Prime Minister over Cabinet, and the impartiality and independence of the Supreme Court. You will look closely at these debates, and look to come up with your own ideas.
