Actions and Detail Panel
“The Business of Judging”
Wed 29 March 2017, 17:30 – 20:00 BST
The independence of Judges and the maintenance of the rule of law is a foundation stone of democracy. Judges in society deal with everyday to rare issues. They interpret contracts to resolve disputes, determine issues between the state and an individual, regulate relationships in the world of finance and decide who is telling the truth when faced with conflicting evidence. In this business and commercial law focused panel session we will hear from a range of distinguished judges from the County Court, the Bankruptcy and Companies Court- High Court, the High Court’s Chancery Division and finally, the Court of Appeal. The respective judges will discuss their judicial functions but also expand upon particular areas of interest in the area of commercial and business law.
We hope that you can join us at our London Campus for what promises to be a fascinating event. For further details and any queries please contact Dr. John Tribe (email@example.com).
