    Hi,
    I'm confused on what Diceyan Orthodoxy is? I've tried to research it a bit but I struggle to understand just the basics of what it is and I need to understand it in order to understand the rest of the course.
    If anyone can help i'd be so grateful!
    Thanks

    Diceyan orthodoxy refers to the expositions(s) of nineteenth century jurist and lawyer A.V. Dicey. More specifically, It refers to Dicey's views on parliamentary sovereignty in his seminal work 'an introduction to the study of the law of the constitution'.

    Dicey believed that Parliament is the ultimate law-maker and that it can, as ascribed by the constitution, make or real any law; and that no person or body can override Parliament. Of course, this view is somewhat distorted in contemporary law.
