La Cour suprême au Royaume-Uni après le Constitutional Reform Act 2005 : une juridiction hors norme

Abstract : Is the replacement of the Appellate Committee of The House of Lords with a new Supreme Court for the United Kingdom a radical transformation of British constitutionalism or a symbolic reform? Some contributions of the CRA are innovative, but this Act also reveals what already existed at the time of the Appellate Committee of the House of Lords. The CRA confirms and increases convergences with the characteristics of other supreme and constitutional courts. However, it has not erased the peculiar nature of this jurisdiction. As a result, the UK’s Supreme Court contributes to the renewal of constitutional justice. It goes beyond the traditional models of constitutional justice and reveals the necessity to think more widely about constitutional justice. After all, the CRA has given rise to an outstanding evolution of the United Kingdom’s Constitution which enhances the debate on constitutional justice and constitutionalism.
