Lord Sumption will discuss the implications of the Brexit and Covid crises for the way we are governed and the future development of our constitution.

Jonathan Sumption, OBE, PC, FSA, FRHistS is a medieval historian and former barrister who sat on the Supreme Court between 2012 and 2018. Exceptionally, he was appointed to the Supreme Court directly from the practising Bar, without having been a full-time judge. His many legal cases included appearances in the Hutton Inquiry, in the Three Rivers case, in the Railtrack private shareholders’ action against the British Government, and in defense of Roman Abramovich in a private lawsuit brought by Boris Berezovsky. He delivered the Reith lectures in 2019. He is also known for writing a substantial narrative history of the Hundred Years War.

Guests of HFA members and non-members will be welcome.

There will be a reception from 6.30 pm: wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be on offer. The talk will start at 7.00 pm.

The dress code at Brooks’s is suit and tie for men and ‘elegant’ for women. Arrangements for the event will comply with any Covid-19-related governmental requirements that are in force at the time.
