Pannick’s advocacy masterclass, Sumption’s ties and the Supreme Court meal deal

This week will go down in history as one of the most pivotal moments in UK constitutional law history.

Eleven justices have spent four days listening to fierce arguments from both sides of the Brexit judicial challenge. There were case law showdowns, legal history lessons, arrests, Confidentiality Orders, statutes upon statutes, spellbinding advocacy and reams of protesters — but everyone on Twitter just wanted to talk about Lord Sumption’s snazzy ties.

Legal Cheek journalist Katie King attended the Supreme Court to report on the action. Today, she and Tom Connelly talk about what went down.
