Reshuffling the judicial top jobs: Supreme Court President and Master of the Rolls

leave a comment »

As well as ministerial changes there have been changes in two of the top judicial jobs.

Lord Phillips, who was the first President of the Supreme Court, reached retirement age this autumn. He is replaced as President, from 1 October 2012, by Lord David Neuberger – who was formerly the Master of the Rolls. See http://www.supremecourt.gov.uk/news/new-president-of-the-supreme-court.html.

The resultant vacancy as Master of the Rolls is filled by Lord John Dyson, currently a member of the Supreme Court. See http://www.number10.gov.uk/news/appointment-of-master-of-the-rolls/
