Elizabethan Club Dinner 2017

Thursday, 9th November 7pm up School, 8pm College Hall
Booking: Opens Play Term

We are honoured that former Elizabethan Club President and President of the Supreme Court, Lord Neuberger (WW, 1961-65) will speak at this year's Elizabethan Club Dinner.

Lord Neuberger is Britain's most senior judge and oversaw the landmark Brexit case at the Supreme Court. President of the Supreme Court since 2012, he steps down in September. His perspective on the case and the treatment of the judiciary (on which he has recently been quoted in the press) are sure to make for a fascinating speech. In a recent interview for the Today programme on Radio 4 Lord Neuberger was quoted as saying:

“We [judges in general] were certainly not well treated...One has to be careful about being critical of the press, particularly as a lawyer or judge, because our view of life is very different from that of the media. I think some of what was said was undermining the rule of law.”

After leaving Westminster, David Neuberger went on to study Chemistry at Christ Church, Oxford. 

Following a brief spell in the world of investment banking, he was called to the Bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1974, where he became a Bencher in 1993. He became a Queen's Counsel in 1987 and was a Recorder from 1990 to 1996, when he was appointed a High Court Judge in the Chancery Division and received the customary knighthood. In 2001, he was made Supervisory Chancery Judge of the Midland, Wales and Chester, and of the Western Circuits, a post he held until 2004, when he was promoted to become a Lord Justice of Appeal and a member of the Privy Council. 
 
In 2007, he became Lord of Appeal in Ordinary and was made a life peer as Baron Neuberger of Abbotsbury. His rise to the Court of Appeal and then to the House of Lords is one of the quickest in recent times.  In 2009 he was appointed Master of the Rolls.
