UK Supreme Court Hearings Now Live

Earlier this week, the United Kingdom Supreme Court announced that its hearings will now be televised live on Sky News.

The UK Supreme Court is the final court of appeal in the UK for all civil cases and for criminal cases from England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It replaced the House of Lords as the highest court in the United Kingdom in October 2009.

The UK Supreme Court joins a small group of top appeal courts that offer live multimedia coverage of their hearings. This includes the European Court of Human Rights and the Supreme Court of Canada.
