Lord Neuberger was appointed President of The Supreme Court (the UK’s highest Court) in 2012 after a distinguished career at the Bar and in the judiciary. As such he is the UK’s most senior judge.
He is most widely known perhaps for presiding over the Court and delivering judgement in the recent high profile case on Article 50(on the need for Parliament to approve the notice to leave the EU) which threw a spotlight on the Court’s constitutional role, the separation of powers and the rule of law.
Lord Neuberger has been involved in many of the Court’s most important decisions; he is a leading promoter of the openness of the Court, and of the diversity of the Justices who serve on it.
