Speech given at the dinner for Her Majesty’s Judges, Mansion House, 3 July 2019

“Much attention in the media and political world is paid to the senior judiciary because that is where the more newsworthy, high-profile and ground-breaking judicial activity tends to occur. But this is not where the overwhelming majority of judicial decisions are made. Thousands of salaried and fee-paid judges dispense justice at first instance in Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals, in decisions of acute importance to those involved in them.”
