We’ve already begun to reflect on the Supreme Court’s first year, and we note that the Court has recently published its first Annual Report and Accounts. This covers the first six months since the Court’s establishment (from October 1 2009 – 31 March 2010).

The 86 page document covers a number of different topics, including the background to the establishment of the Court, its mission and objectives, information about “some of the more interesting and high profile cases that have come before the Court”, statistics on casework, the appointment of justices, transparency and openness as well as the administrative and financial matters and the accounts. It also contains lots of nice full colour photos.

You can also see the Court’s press release here. Much is made of the efforts to encourage members of the public to visit the court and sit in on cases.

Over the coming weeks, as part of our reflections on the Court’s first year, we’ll be taking a look at a number of the areas covered by the report in a little bit more detail.  Watch this space!
