In 1982, a young academic, Alan Paterson, published a remarkable book, The Law Lords. At a time when most judges believed, like Lord Justice MacKinnon in 1940, that “the best judge” is the one “whose name is known to the fewest readers of The Daily Mail”, he persuaded many of the senior members of the judiciary to talk about how they decided cases. Professor Paterson has returned to his subject in Final Judgment: The Last Law Lords and the Supreme Court (Hart Publishing, (25).
