Lord Judge: Judges have a duty to defend the unpopular

PUBLISHED December 19, 2015

Just out in time for Christmas is Lord Judge’s collection of lectures, speeches and essays The Safest Shield (the title comes from a quotation by Sir Edward Coke and refers to the rule of law). The collection spans his time as lord chief justice of England and Wales from 2008 to 2013 — and covers constitutional developments and judicial independence to personal reflections on topics such as the Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations. He is donating all royalties to the Kalisher Trust.
