Law in (about) 60 Seconds: On the nature of the UK Constitution

Following the judgment in Cherry/Miller (No 2), there are a number of takeaways from the text that ought to enter into the public discourse. Noted for her use of plain language, Lady Hale, President of the UK Supreme Court, took the opportunity to restate some of the basic tenets of Constitutional Law in the United Kingdom.

The following is Paragraph 39 which highlights our democracy as representative, and how the executive, legislative, and judicial branches interact with each other under the principle of Parliamentary supremacy (sovereignty) that has existed since the middle of the 17th century.

This is the first in the “Law in 60 Seconds” series of videos I’m going to make.

Engaging with contemporary international legal affairs that are challenging and complex in general, I am focused on researching statehood and international legal personality as well as international criminal law. I regularly consult with multiple NGOs and corporate interests, aiding in the development of policy and engagement strategies with a regard for international law and regulations. As a corollary to these advisory positions, I also engage in university teaching of international law (international criminal law, comparative constitutional law, public international law) at UK universities as an external lecturer. I frequently participate in related conferences and events throughout the UK and elsewhere, developing strong academic and professional networks. This has often resulted in my ability to connect individuals and groups who may be of particular interest to each other, as well as fostering a positive collaborative environment amongst my colleagues.
