UK Supreme Court proceedings can now be viewed any time, any place, with the launch of an on-demand archive of past hearings unveiled today to complement the court’s existing live streaming service.
Lawyers, law students and anyone interested in the workings of the highest court in the land will now be able to watch hearings of cases over the preceding year at their convenience – a move likely to cut legal costs in the production of transcripts as well as providing a unique educational tool.
“Now justice can be seen to be done at a time which suits you,” said Lord Neuberger, President of the Supreme Court. “The archive will help people see the background to decisions made in our highest appeal court. It will also be useful to the legal profession and serve as an informative tool for those considering a career in the law.”
