[2019 was a year for reflection for the UK Supreme Court. It was celebrating its tenth anniversary, and witnessing a very substantial renewal of its membership from three years before. In acknowledgment of this the Court organised a number of events, including four lectures by Justices from each part of the United Kingdom and a moderated discussion with its first three Presidents. The Judicial Institute for its part invited Alan Paterson, author of Final Judgment: The Last Law Lords and the Supreme Court ( Hart Publishing, 2013 ) to give a lecture to an audience of senior judges and other stakeholders, from his ongoing project on the Presidents of the UK Supreme Court, on 2nd December 2019 entitled, “Presidency and the Supreme Court: Lord Neuberger’s Legacy”. ]
