Posted January 15th, 2018 in courts, judges, speeches by tracey

‘As many of you know I was Presiding Judge on the Western Circuit between 2011 and 2014 and so spent a good deal of time in this great city, including sitting on cases in this building. For that reason, it is a pleasure to be here this morning to launch the B & P courts in Bristol. Our laws and legal system have recently and very properly been described as ‘a vital national asset’. Our courts are central to that system. They contribute to our global influence and our national wealth. They secure that surest public good: the rule of law.’
