Watch: The Rule of Law and Judicial Independence, with Lady Hale

By Chris Tilbury  

What underpins London’s position as a leading centre for international dispute resolution? Why do so many businesses and individuals around the world choose English law to govern their transactions, and resolve their disputes in London?

In these times of uncertainty, including shifting global trading relationships and technological change accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic, some of the fundamental and enduring features of the English legal system continue to be highly relevant to international dispute resolution choices.

The Rule of Law and Judicial independence are a crucial part of this. As the President of the UK Supreme Court until January 2020, Baroness Hale is uniquely placed to comment on what it takes to maintain judicial independence and uphold the rule of law when the judiciary finds itself under pressure and in the media spotlight.
