The Right Honourable The Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE PC QC FBA
At a time of heightened political tension surrounding the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, presided over by Baroness Hale of Richmond, ruled that the government’s prorogation of Parliament was unlawful – a decision that has been described as reaffirming parliamentary sovereignty and having major implications for our system of government.
In the Magna Carta Lecture 2021, almost two years on from the event, Lady Hale will reflect on the events and ruling of 2019.
The Right Honourable The Baroness Hale of Richmond is a retired judge, crossbench peer and former President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, the first woman to hold that position.
