On 6th-9th March 2023, UK Supreme Court to Sit in Manchester for the First Time

From Monday 6th to Thursday 9th March 2023, the Supreme Court will be sitting at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre next week. This visit will be the first time that the Court has sat outside of one of the four UK capital cities, having previously sat in Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff.
Lord Reed, President of the UK Supreme Court, will be accompanied by Lord Hodge, Deputy President of the UK Supreme Court, Lord Lloyd-Jones, Lord Burrows, Lord Stephens, Lady Rose and Lord Richards when the Court sits in Courtroom 47 of the Manchester Civil Justice Centre.

The Supreme Court will hear the following cases during the week:

Monday 6th March and Tuesday 7th March: The Manchester Ship Canal Company Ltd (Appellant) v United Utilities Water Ltd (Respondent) No 2 (UKSC 2022/0121). More details can be found on the case page.

Wednesday 8th March: R (on the application of Palmer) (Appellant) v Northern Derbyshire Magistrates Court and another (Respondents) (UKSC 2021/0233). More details can be found on the case page.

Thursday 9th March: R (on the application of Toraane and another) (AP) (Appellants) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (Respondents) (UKSC 2021/0195). More details can be found on the case page.

The Court will also hand down a judgment on Wednesday 8 March: R (on the application of VIP Communications Ltd (In Liquidation)) (Respondent) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (Appellant)

The Supreme Court is committed to being one of the most open and accessible courts in the world, and warmly invites members of the public and media to witness its proceedings. For anyone who has been curious about the workings of the UK’s highest court, the sittings in Manchester are the perfect opportunity to see the Court in operation locally.

Public can find out more about attending the hearings in person on our website.

Members of the press will also be able to attend and cover the hearings. For accreditation, please apply by emailing Scot Marchbank, Head of Communications or Maura Kalthoff, Events and Communications Manager.

As with all UK Supreme Court proceedings, the hearings will be accessible to anyone who wants to watch them via the live stream on the Supreme Court website. The live stream link will be made available from the Supreme Court homepage on each morning of the 4-day visit.

The Justices will also be taking part in a range of events outside of the sittings in Manchester. Every year the Justices participate in the Court’s education and outreach programmes to inspire and engage students of all ages with law and the legal profession. The outreach work in Manchester will include judging moots with the University of Derby and University of Bolton, as well as a Judicial Assistant recruitment event at the Manchester Law Society, and a live “Ask a Justice”, where sixth form students pose questions to a Justice. More information about the engagement activities that the Justices will be taking part in can be found on our website.
