Talk by Lord Neuberger, the UK’s most senior judge
Bridport Area Development Trust is delighted to welcome Supreme Court President, Lord Neuberger, to Bridport to give a talk about the Supreme Court and its role in our challenging times.
The talk will take place at 7.30pm on Friday 28 April at Bridport Town Hall.
Lord Neuberger was appointed President of The Supreme Court (the UK’s highest Court) in 2012 after a distinguished career at the Bar and in the judiciary. As such he is the UK’s most senior judge.
He is most widely known perhaps for presiding over the Court and delivering judgement in the recent high profile case on Article 50(on the need for Parliament to approve the notice to leave the EU) which threw a spotlight on the Court’s constitutional role, the separation of powers and the rule of law.
Lord Neuberger has been involved in many of the Court’s most important decisions; he is a leading promoter of the openness of the Court, and of the diversity of the Justices who serve on it. He is due to retire this autumn.
He has been a Governor of the University of the Arts London, and is currently Patron of the mental health charity MHRUK.
He lives in Dorset and was created a life peer in 2007.
