(p.376) 20 Reflections from the New Commonwealth
The Judicial House of Lords 1876–2009

Fred Phillips

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of how, when viewed from the New Commonwealth, the Appellate Committee of the House of Lords was always considered a powerful, if amorphous, creation, while the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council was less so. It argues that despite the criticisms and imperfections, it cannot be disputed that the courts made an invaluable contribution to the common law jurisprudence in the New Commonwealth.
