With open justice as its aim, the Supreme Court welcomes and informs the public, and has even won a high rating on TripAdvisor – but what does the uninitiated visitor make of the coded theatre of the hearings?
Isobel Williams occasionally draws in the public seats, with the court’s permission and records her impressions on her blog.
Why does she do it, and how did she get there? Isobel’s copiously illustrated talk describes how sketching people under the A40 and at the Occupy protest camps led her to the highest court in the land. She will include her thoughts and pictures from Nicklinson, the 'right-to-die' case heard at the Supreme Court which has been studied by Jenny Edwards.
