Law Lords leave the House

I recently posted that the new UK Supreme Court is poised to commence operation on 1 October 2009.

The prelude to that occurred last week, when the Appellate Committee of the House of Lords delivered its last judgments, closing a chapter on 600 years of English legal history.

Peter A Clarke posted a useful summary of the final seven decision delivered by the Lords, and Insite Law Magazine linked to an article in The Times that shows a rare photo inside Committee Room 1 where the Appellate Committee routinely sat. Not what I envisioned in my mind’s eye for the highest court of the land in the UK.
