“...a very useful set of essays that engage with the constitutional role of the House of Lords/Supreme Court (as well as its international peers) and the processes of the court, as well as investigation of the role of the court in some substantive areas of law....There is a great deal of interesting and varied material here to dip in and out of and the book certainly repays reading.” – Patrick O'Brien,
“The twelve contributions in this volume are diverse in their themes and opinions but uniformly the contributions are stimulating and interesting and alike in the high quality of their analysis. This book will be of great value to anyone interested in the workings of the old Lords and the new Supreme Court.” – Scott Crichton Styles,

“This book is a joy and a gem, being a collection of inspired, inspiring, certainly thought provoking and often controversial papers delivered at a significant event held in 2009.
You could also regard this book as a handy research tool, with its extentsive tables of cases and of legislation – some of it from other jurisdictions – and the invaluable index.
Suffice to say that the book more than achieves its stated aim: 'to reflect upon the jurisprudence of the House of Lords and to consider the prospects for judging in the new Supreme Court.'” – Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers,
“this book provides a great deal of insight into contemporary developments in British law-and especially in light of the growing interaction of European law with the domestic common-law tradition. It is a book of interest for scholars of British and European law, but it also illustrates, from within the councils of contemporary British legal thought, a central aspect of British legal and political concern about Europe and the European Union. Editor Lee, the Society of Legal Scholars and the publisher can be proud of this finely crafted, balanced and intricately detailed volume.” – H.G. Callaway,
