Lord Justice Thomas will deliver the first Cardiff Law School Annual Lecture at the School this evening.
Sir John Thomas became a QC in 1984. In 1996, he was appointed a High Court Judge of the Queens Bench Division where he was a judge in the Commercial Court. He was the Presiding Judge of the Wales and Chester Circuit from 1998 to 2001 and Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales from 2003 to 2006. He was made a Lord Justice of Appeal in 2003. He has taken a lead in raising awareness both within and beyond Wales of the legal challenges and opportunities of devolution.
His lecture, sponsored by Civitas, is entitled Law Making at Cardiff, Westminster and Brussels: Access to Justice and the Rule of Law. Lord Thomas will examine devolution in its wider context with particular emphasis on issues that arise in ensuring that the rule of law prevails through a clear understanding of the position of the framework within which laws are made, enacting laws that are capable of being applied and understood and thereby the provision of effective access to justice.
Lord Justice Thomas’ lecture will be held at 6.30pm, following a reception at 5.30pm, at Cardiff Law School, Museum Avenue. The Law School is holding a reunion for pre-1975 alumni tonight, as part of Cardiff University’s 125th Anniversary celebrations.
Admission to both the reception and lecture is free and open to the public, as well as staff and students of Cardiff University. For more information please contact John Ryder on 029 208 75364 or email email@example.com .
