Beverly McLachlin, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada via Family Law, Global News.
Beverley McLachlin had no career goal and little self-confidence when she went to university in the 1960s, let alone the faintest notion that she would one day become a role model to young women across the country. More than 50 years later, perched on the threshold of legal history as the longest-serving chief justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, she says the symbolism of her gender is a constant source of astonishment.
Supreme Court of the United Kingdom
The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom is the supreme court in all matters under English and Welsh law, Northern Ireland law and Scottish civil law. It is the court of last resort and the highest appellate court in the United Kingdom, although the High Court of Justiciary remains the supreme court for criminal cases in Scotland. The Supreme Court also has jurisdiction to resolve disputes relating to devolution in the United Kingdom and concerning the legal powers of the three devolved governments (in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) or laws made by the devolved legislatures.
The Supreme Court was established by Part 3 of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 and started work on 1 October 2009.
”Not all black robes are Corrupt and for those that rule in a fair and just manner need more Public Support for standing UP to the corruption permeated in this system.” – Deborah Barclay
