Hearings in the Supreme Court are now shown live on the Court’s website.

From Monday 7 October to Wednesday 9 October, the Supreme Court will hear the appeal of Micula & Ors v Romania.

This will be heard in Courtroom 1 at 11:00, 10:30 and 10:30 on the respective days.

On Monday 7 October and Tuesday 8 October, the Court will also hear the appeal of R (DN (Rwanda)) v Secretary of State for the Home Department. It will consider (1) whether R (on the application of Draga) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2012] EWCA Civ 842 was correctly decided and (2) whether the Court of Appeal in this case was, in fact, bound for the reasons it gave to follow Draga. This will be heard in Courtroom 2 at 11:00 on Monday and 10:30 on Tuesday.

This will be heard in Courtroom 2 at 10:30.

On Thursday 10 October 2019, the Privy Council hear the appeal of Magner & Anor r v Royal Bank of Scotland International Ltd (Gibraltar).
