Speech by Sir Geoffrey Vos, Chancellor of the High Court: Launch of the Business and Property Courts in Bristol – Courts and Tribunals Judiciary

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

‘First, as we leave the European Union, it is incredibly important that judges and lawyers alike can demonstrate that English law and the courts of England & Wales will continue to offer world class dispute resolution services. We cannot achieve this if we continue to use unintelligible and incomprehensible names and titles. As I said in London at the first of the 5 launches that have already taken place, we need to reach out to the users of these courts and to national and international business generally, so as to ensure that they understand what we are offering in terms of business and commercial litigation here in England and Wales. We need to make sure that these business users can easily understand the services we offer.’

‘I am very grateful to the Criminal Cases Review Commission for asking me to join you this morning to reflect briefly on your first twenty years of service to the rule of law and cause of justice. As I am first to speak may I thank Linklaters on your collective behalf for their generous hospitality without which this event would not be taking place. It is particularly poignant for me to be here because, as some of you know, I was junior counsel to the May inquiry into the convictions of the Guildford Four and Maguire family and so whilst not quite the midwife to the birth of the Criminal Cases Review Commission was one of those in the delivery room. You have a fascinating day ahead of you and I am only sorry that pressing commitments elsewhere will force me to leave, rather rudely, as soon as I have finished speaking.’
