The Supreme Court last week swore in its two new justices. Lord Justice Hughes (pictured, top left) succeeds Lord Dyson and Lord Justice Toulson (pictured, top right) succeeds Lord Walker.

Hughes will first hear a case from Northern Ireland concerning the admissibility of electronic fingerprinting as evidence and Toulson will consider the right to a fair trial in a case from Scotland. Lady Hale remains the only woman in the 12-member court.
