Speech by Master of the Rolls: A UK perspective on EU civil justice: Impact on domestic dispute resolution

On European Civil Justice Day, Sir Anthony Clarke speaks about the most important developments in European Union (EU) Civil Justice currently taking place which he hopes will enable UK citizens to enforce their rights.

“We all have much to learn from each other and much to contribute. In fostering that learning process, the UK, our continental partners and the European Union itself, will I hope fulfil, at any rate in the context of civil justice, the ideal enshrined in the European Union’s motto, which is of course United in Diversity.”
