The senior judge responsible for delivering major reform of the tribunal system across the UK over the last five years will tomorrow take on a new role, swapping leadership of a dedicated team of 5,000 office-holders for a seat on the Supreme Court bench.
Lord Justice Carnwath CVO will be sworn in as a Justice of the Supreme Court tomorrow morning during a brief ceremony at the Parliament Square court building. His appointment follows the retirement of Lord Brown at Easter.
Following the ceremony, Lord Justice Carnwath will be styled Lord Carnwath of Notting Hill. He will begin sitting on Wednesday, among a panel of five Justices sitting as the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council hearing a historic land title dispute case from the Cook Islands.
