Visit to the Supreme Court

Wednesday, 18th November 2009 at 5:30pm till 6:30pm

CLIG is pleased to offer you the chance to be amongst the first to visit the Supreme Court on Wednesday 18 November at 5.30pm.  Jenny Rowe, Chief Executive, will give a talk on the background to the court, explaining why the 600 year old tradition of the House of Lords acting as the final arbiter on cases has now been replaced by a new Supreme Court.  Her talk will also cover:

  • the court's objectives
  • the court's jurisdiction
  • information on how and when judgements will be made available
  • how justices come to be appointed to the court and their work

Your hour long visit will also include a tour of the building, formerly Middlesex Crown Court (and prior to that Middlesex Guildhall), and will take in some of its art works, historic and modern – such as the famous "pop-art carpet designed by Sir Peter Blake of 'Sergeant Pepper' fame" – not to mention the superb purpose built law library. 

Spaces are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis, with priority being given to CLIG members.  Should spaces remain these will be offered to wait-listed non-members.

The court’s address and directions to it can be found here.

Please note the court is a high security area and you may be subjected to airport style security checking.
