The Public Law Project

In the week that the Public Law Project won the “residence test” case in the UK Supreme Court, I thought it would be a good time to share with my readers this video which was made last year to mark PLP’s 25th anniversary.

My friend and former Court of Appeal colleague Sir Stephen Sedley starts the video with his description of the way it started in 1990 and what it set out to do.  Tributes are paid to different aspects of its work by Dinah Rose QC and by Carol Storer, the Director of the Legal Aid Practitioners’ Group, and also by two of its beneficiaries, and I was asked to say something about the research it has commissioned from time to time over the years.

I was invited to succeed my hero Lord Scarman as the patron of PLP nine years ago, and I am immensely proud of everything that this small charity has been able to achieve in promoting access to justice in the field of public law.
