Footage of proceedings in the court will be uploaded the next working day, and once a judgement is delivered, footage of the Justices’ summary will also be published alongside the full judgement text and press summary.
Many past judgements have been uploaded including the controversial case of Vince v Wyatt in which an ex-wife claimed financial support from her ex-husband, despite the divorce having been finalised back in 1992.
Now, members of the public can watch the judgement unfold from the comfort of their own home.
Lord Neuberger, President of the Supreme Court, said:
“Now justice can be seen to be done at a time which suits you”.
The archive will not only prove an interesting and useful resource for members of the legal profession and law students, but also allows the public to see the inner workings of our highest appeal court, and shows the background to landmark cases which affect us all.
