Earlier this month Graham Gee, a lecturer in the Law School, was invited to give oral evidence to the House of Lords Select Committee on the Constitution as part of its inquiry into the office of Lord Chancellor.

With colleagues from UCL and Queen Mary, Graham has recently completed a three-year AHRC-funded project on The Politics of Judicial Independence in Britain’s Changing Constitution. One limb to that project focused on the changing role and responsibilities of the Lord Chancellor.

Earlier this year Graham published an article on the topic in the leading law journal Public Law: "What are Lord Chancellors For?" [2014] P.L. 11-27. A copy of the written evidence that Graham submitted to the Committee is available online.
