Lord Mance visited the Faculty on Friday 5 April and gave a lecture on international law cases which have come before the British Supreme Court. These have mainly concerned Iraq or the ‘war on terror’ and many of them have also involved interchanges with the European Court of Human Rights under the Convention. There was a very large audience with students sitting in the aisles of the Northey Lecture Theatre.

Lord Mance has been a judge for 20 years. He became a law lord in 2005 and has been a member of the British Supreme Court since it was established in 2009. He was accompanied by his wife Lady Justice Arden who has also been a judge for 20 years and is now a member of the Court of Appeal.
