Lady Hale tells Malaysia what we should expect from the Supreme Court.
 
Lady Hale, who is one of a panel of 11 justices who will decide whether parliamentary approval is needed before the Government can formally apply to quit the EU, also insisted that the referendum vote was not "legally binding". 
She sparked surprise by revealing some of her thoughts on the Brexit issue to an audience of lawyers in Malaysia. 
In a speech in Kuala Lumpur last Wednesday (November 9th) about the evolving constitutional role of the Supreme Court, Lady Hale said: "Just before I left to come here, a unanimous divisional court held that the Secretary of State does not have power under the royal prerogative to give notice to withdraw from the European Union."

 She specialised in Family and Social Welfare law, was founding editor of the Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law, and authored a pioneering case book on ‘The Family, Law and Society’.
She has been a strong advocate of improving diversity
In 1984 she was the first woman to be appointed to the Law Commission, a statutory body which promotes the reform of the law. Important legislation resulting from the work of her team at the Commission includes the Children Act 1989, the Family Law Act 1996, and the Mental Capacity Act 2005. She also began sitting as an assistant recorder.

However, in refusing permission to appeal, Lady Hale DPSC chose not to rely on the limits of EU law at all (hence it was not important for her whether any of the three arguments succeeds). Instead, she assumed for the sake of argument that EU law applies and concluded that even on that assumption the case was not arguable.
