Stair Society Lecture 22 Nov. 2023

This year’s annual lecture to the Stair Society will be given by Professor Catharine MacMillan of King’s College London. Professor MacMillan is an Honorary Professor In Edinburgh. Her topic is “Making the Imperial Tribunal more truly imperial in its constitution: the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council and colonial judges”. She will discuss the rather under-researched issue of the the functioning of the Judicial Committee as an imperial court, and, in particular, the composition of that tribunal with the
inclusion of Dominion and colonial judges.
