Update: Supreme Court in Wales for first time

March 1, 2019 | Latest Thinking, News

The Supreme Court will sit in Wales for the first time this year, as recently announced.

The sitting is to take place in the summer, in which hearings shall be held from 22 to 25 July 2019 within the ‘Ty Hywel’ building inside the National Assembly.

The sitting in Wales follows from the court also sitting in Scotland in 2017 and Northern Ireland in 2018, in which cases were heard in relation to those specific locations. This means that following from the sitting, the court would have sat in all four parts of the United Kingdom, as stated by the president of the Supreme Court; Lady Hale.

One of the notable cases that shall be discussed during the sitting is Edwards on behalf of the Estate of the Late Arthur Watkins (Respondent) V Hugh James Ford Simey Solicitors in which it will be decided  to what extent evidence obtained by the court after a settlement date should be admitted by court.

The announcement comes on the day of the Welsh celebration of St. Davis Day – the patron saint of Wales.
