Anniversary seminar for the Supreme Court
Professor Andrew Le Sueur and Professor Kate Malleson were invited by the Supreme Court to organise a seminar to mark the first year of the work of the Supreme Court.
The seminar was held on 30 September 2010 at the Supreme Court building in Parliament Square and was attended by academics, practitioners and judges including ten of the Supreme Court Justices. The seminar picked up on some of themes raised in the series of seminars held at Queen Mary in the run-up to the opening of the Court in 2008-9.
