From House of Lords to Supreme Court free pdf 2009 saw the Centenary of the Society of Legal Scholars and the transition of the House of Lords to the new Supreme Court. The papers presented in this volume arise from a seminar organised jointly by the Society of Legal Scholars and University of Birmingham to celebrate and reflect on these historic events. The papers consider a range of topics, including judicial reasoning and the interaction between judges, academics and the professions over a century of transformation. The volume gathers leading authorities on the House of Lords in its judicial capacity together with academics whose specialisms lie in particular fields of law. The relationship between judge and jurist is, therefore, investigated from a variety of perspectives and jurisdictions. In focussing upon cases the aim of the book is to take the jurisprudence of the House of Lords seriously and to contribute to the shared task of interpretative development of the law.
