Appointments to the Supreme Court

Lord Reed and Lord Justice Carnwath CVO have been appointed as new Justices of the Supreme Court.

The two appointments follow the death of Lord Rodger in June 2011 and the forthcoming retirement of Lord Brown in April 2012.

“Lord Reed brings depth of experience in Scots law and practice, as well as insights into the work of the European Court of Human Rights," said Lord Phillips, President of the Court. “Lord Justice Carnwath’s range of experience as a senior judge is complemented by his Chairmanship of the Law Commission, his work reforming the tribunals system and his service as the first Senior President of Tribunals."

“As I near the end of my time as President of this court, it is encouraging to be welcoming colleagues of such high calibre and I am only sorry I will not have longer to work alongside them,” he added.
