Building the UK's New Supreme Court

Richard Gordon

Oxford University Press

This chapter queries, among other things, an imagined premise that the current system of litigating cases in the House of Lords — and its successor the new UK supreme court — is the most suitable method of determining legal issues in the new constitutional litigation likely to be engendered by the Human Rights Act. It advances, and seeks to answer, a series of questions designed to test that premise in order to sketch a number of alternatives to the present system.

Keywords:   UK supreme court, constitutional litigation, House of Lords, Human Rights Act
