The UK Supreme Court - 10 Years of Law and Politics
Part of a series of events to engage with various aspects of the BREXIT debate, this evening event turns a spotlight onto the UK’s Supreme Court, it’s foundation, it’s jurisdiction and it’s place in the UK Constitution.
University of Surrey
This event marks the tenth anniversary of the opening of the UK’s Supreme Court. The presentation by speaker, Nicholas Clapham, will examine the reasons behind its creation and ask, in a broad sense, what an examination of the Court tells us about the characteristics of the UK’s uncodified constitution. It will further consider how law and politics intersect during appeal level, public law, litigation. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session where the audience will have the chance to ask questions on the matters raised.
The event is recommended for anyone with an interest in the legal aspects of the UK constitution particularly at this crucial time and highly recommended for those involved or about to be involved in the study of Public Law.
