During the first half of 2008, a series of six seminars was held in the School of Law at Queen Mary University of London on the United Kingdom Supreme Court. Participants included Law Lords and other senior members of the judiciary, practitioners, and academics. This report records the fascinating exchange of views that took place at those unprecedented meetings. Among the themes explored were: the selection of cases; relations of the UK Supreme Court with lower courts and tribunals; procedures and costs; communication methods; the UK Supreme Court's jurisdiction over Scottish matters; and the constitutional framework within which the new court will work.
