Earlier this month Graham Gee, a senior lecturer at Birmingham Law School, spoke at a seminar at the UK Supreme Court. The seminar marked the fifth anniversary since the Court’s creation in 2009 and was attended by senior judges, officials, practitioners and academics.

Graham spoke about some of the financial and administrative challenges that have confronted the Court during its first five years. Together with colleagues from Queen Mary (Kate Malleson) and UCL’s Constitution Unit (Robert Hazell and Patrick O'Brien), Graham has recently concluded a three-year AHRC project on The Politics of Judicial Independence in the UK’s Changing Constitution. One limb of that project was concerned with the independence of  the Supreme Court.
