We draw the attention of our readers to another important conference in the recent series considering the first year of the Supreme Court.  It is a full day conference organized by The Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary, University of London.  Its purpose is to assess the first year of the Supreme Court and, more broadly, discuss key developments in English law.  It will take place at the Royal College of Surgeons, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, on 3 November 2010. 

The conference is divided into three sessions. The first session will focus on the role of the Supreme Court, constitutional law and human rights. The second session will provide comparative perspectives from Europe and the United States. The third session will focus on private and commercial law developments examining both specific judgments delivered by the Supreme Court and more general themes on the evolution of private law.
