ukscyfrontcover At some 520 pages in length, Volume 7 of the Yearbook comprises 40 contributions from over 50 authors, including three current Justices of the UK Supreme Court (the President, Lord Neuberger; the Deputy President, Lady Hale; and the recently retired Justice, Lord Toulson), the Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia (Chief Justice French), a former Attorney General of England & Wales (Dominic Grieve QC MP), six distinguished professors and an associate professor and 40 prominent barristers, 33 of whom are leading silks (QCs) and most of whom argued the many important cases before the Court in the past legal year.

Volume 7 of the Yearbook was launched at an event held in the Macmillan Room of Portcullis House in Westminster on Monday, 12 December 2016. The launch was followed by a drinks reception, proudly sponsored by Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP, and by the Annual Lecture delivered by Julian Knowles QC, who successfully led the appeal to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in Ruddock v The Queen – a conjoined appeal with R v Jogee to the UK Supreme Court in which the Justices overturned 30 years of authority on criminal joint enterprise from the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.
