Supreme Court on Skype

Pupils at six schools will be given the chance to quiz Supreme Court justices over the internet, its President, Lady Hale, told the Lords’ Constitution Committee. The ‘Skype a Justice’ scheme is part of the court’s attempts to reach out beyond London. It will sit in Belfast from 30 April to 2 May. Last month Lady Hale appeared on the BBC cooking show MasterChef in an episode celebrating female suffrage.
