Court launches catch-up service

By Wesleyan

What goes on inside the highest court in the UK is to be made public knowledge thanks to a new catch-up service.

The Supreme Court has decided to launch its own online video archive, showing footage of past hearings in a bid to cut transcript costs.

People will be able to see judges make decisions, plus find out about the background to these decisions.

Lord Neuberger, president of the Supreme Court, claims the service will offer an insight into justice.  He says it will be a useful, informative tool to the legal profession and people considering a career in law.

Videos will be uploaded to the archive the next working day, where they will remain available to the public for a year.

Some 900 hours of footage is archived online. One of the clips shows the legal debate before the court's decision in March to allow letters written by the Prince of Wales to government ministers to be published.
