Professor and Dean Emeritus Robert K. Walsh, the national President of the American Inns of Court, will represent the organization at ceremonies starting in Westminster Abby on Oct. 1. The ceremonies are to celebrate the initiation of the British Legal Year and the establishment of the first Supreme Court in the history of the United Kingdom. For centuries, the highest court of the United Kingdom was the House of Lords. For the past century, a committee of Law Lords has functioned as the country’s highest court and all judges have been appointed by a member of the prime minister’s cabinet. Beginning Oct. 1, the current 12 Law Lords will become Justices of the new Supreme Court and move out of the House of Lords section of Parliament to a new separate Supreme Court building. The head of the new Supreme Court will be the President, currently the Senior Law Lord, Lord Nicholas Phillips.
