The Judicial House of Lords 1876–2009

This chapter considers how far, from 1875 onwards, the Judicial House of Lords affect the City of London and the financial services capital it has become. It looks at the four ways in which the impact of the House of Lords has been felt: general commercial law, financial law, financial regulation, and the glancing blow. It is argued that generally speaking, the House of Lords has served the City well. It has never engaged heavily in City affairs, but what it has done has been helpful to the world of commerce rather than the reverse.

Keywords:   House of Lords, commercial law, financial law, financial regulation, London
