Speaker information

Lord Judge, Recently retired Lord Chief Justice

Lord Judge will deliver a lecture on the topic of 'Constitutional Change: Unfinished Business'. This is the closing lecture for the AHRC project on The Politics of Judicial Independence in Britain's Changing Constitution. As Lord Chief Justice until the end of September this year, Lord Judge presided over the judiciary during a ‚Äúconstitutional revolution‚ÄĚ (his own term) and a period of budgetary austerity. During his tenure the judiciary doubled in size by incorporating the tribunals system and embarked on a new relationship of negotiations with Government on the future direction of the justice system. At the same time the Human Rights Act and the European Convention became more politically controversial. From his unique vantage point, Lord Judge will describe the challenges now facing the British constitution.
