Product description


...essential reading to those interested in judicial politics, in the evolution of judicial institutions more generally, and to some legal historians. Perhaps more impressive than its crucial importance to some readers is the fact that JHOL will provide something of substantial interest to almost all scholars of law with the jurisdictions of the UK and indeed the Commonwealth more generally. (Lindsay Stirton, The University of Sheffield, Public Law Journal)

...everything you wanted to know about every lord ever-112 of them-is in The Judicial House of Lords 1876-2009 (Marcel Berlins, The Guardian)

...a collection of essays from leading legal minds, easily digestible individually. Furthermore, it achieves the difficult task of documenting the complex history of the judicial House of Lords, while predicting its impact upon the newly constituted Supreme Court (Emily Dix, intern with JUSTICE from Boston College Law School)

A monumental collection of scholarly contributions (Antony Lentin, author of The Last Political Law Lord: Lord Sumner (1859-1934) (2008) [Cambridge Scholars Publishing])

As the new court prepares for its official opening next month, Louis Blom-Cooper, QC, has published a weighty tome of articles under the title The Judicial House of Lords, providing the chance of a nostalgic retrospective...there are chapters from 40 leading academics, lawyers, and judges spanning no fewer than 912 pages, a collective valedictory tribute as the House of Lords loses its judicial arm and the Supreme Court opens. (Frances Gibb, The Times, September 2009)

Sir Louis Blom-Cooper QC has practised as a barrister for nearly sixty years. In The Judicial House of Lords 1876-2009, he and his fellow editors have well shown what was lost when the House of Lords concluded its last hearing in July. This book is not only the record of a court but an authoritative introduction to recent developments in every major area of the law. More than forty academics, lawyers and judges have analysed the judicial House of Lords from every perspective. Blom-Cooper, who worked as a part-time legal journalist when barristers were not allowed to write under their own names, has even contributed a chapter on the law lords' literary style. (Joshua Rozenberg, The Times Literary Supplement, September 2009)

'beautifully produced' (Joshua Rozenberg, Times Literary Supplement)

A work of scholarship and insight with editorial voices sounding forth from every aspect of the legal profession...It is, indeed, a tribute to what is now a piece of constitutional history. (Phillip Taylor and Elizabeth Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers)

'...not only the record of a court but an authoritative introduction to recent developments in every major area of law. More than forty academics, lawyers and judges have analysed the judicial House of Lords from every perspective (Joshua Rozenberg, Times Literary Supplement)

The overall quality, in terms of both presentation and content, is first-class...The editors and publisher are to be congratulated on achieving what must have been a Herculean task. It is undoubtedly a fitting tribute to a mighty institution. (Christopher Brown, UKSCblog, November 2009)
