Speaker information

Lord Phillips of Worth Matrave, President of the UK Supreme Court

Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, President of the Supreme Court, will discuss the twin issues of Judicial Independence and Accountability with particular reference to his own experience in the first years of the new Court. The independence of the staff and budget of the Supreme Court have been in focus recently as the government seeks to reduce the cost of court administration, and a number of court-related administrative bodies look set to be abolished or modified by the Public Bodies Bill in its current form. The new Court has placed a great deal of importance on its relationship with the public and the media, creating summaries of decided and forthcoming cases for its website and emphasising education and public access to its work.
