This chapter begins with a discussion of justifications for references to the ‘Bingham Court’ after Lord Bingham, given that naming a court after an individual judge seems antithetical to a central tenet of the British approach to administering justice. The chapter then discusses issues of judicial administration, the constitutional role of the Appellate Committee, and the quality of the law-making.
