The recent decision of the UK Supreme Court on the Brexit process brought the court into the public spotlight like never before. Eight years on from its creation and with technology set to transform our justice system, what does the future hold for the UK’s highest court in the land? What lessons might be drawn from the Supreme Court's experience of technology and the media?

We are delighted to be hosting a free event in Edinburgh exclusively for our members to attend. This is your opportunity to hear from Justices of the UK Supreme Court: Lord Neuberger (President of the Supreme Court), Lady Hale (Deputy President of the Supreme Court), Lord Reed and Lord Hodge. The event will be chaired by Law Society President Graham Matthews.

There will be a panel discussion from the four Justices on what the future holds for the Supreme Court and there will be an opportunity for you to ask questions.
