In two weeks’ time the first term of the UKSC’s second year will begin.  The Court already seems to be gearing itself up for Michaelmas Term after the quieter, summer months and is starting to feel ‘busier’ again.

Today and tomorrow the Court is opening up its Law Library to the public, where visitors will have a chance to see a George III tapestry and Thomas Gainsborough’s portrait of the 1st Duke of Northumberland.   The list of cases for next term has been published (along with a few other small news pieces), and the first case to be heard this term will be Progress Property Company Limited (Appellant) v Moorgarth Group Limited (Respondent).   The case relates to shares being sold at an undervalue and directors’ duties and is due to be heard on Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 October 2010 by Lords Phillips, Walker, Mance, Collins and Clarke.  A case preview will be published on the blog next week.

The start of the new term also means things will once again get busier on UKSC blog.  So, watch this space!
