The Chancellor

G.Jessel made this Freedom of Information request to Supreme Court of the United Kingdom

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Supreme Court of the United Kingdom,

Under the FOI ACT can you provide all information you hold relating to how one would access a Chancellor sitting as a judge.

All Chancellor's are judges but not all judges are Chancellor's.

The Lord Chancellor no longer sits as a judge, therefore is the Chancellor of the Chancery Division still able to sit as a Chancellor in the inherent jurisdiction of the High Court.

Who holds the position of Vice-Chancellor and can they sit as a Chancellor, and is any other position available within any of the courts to hear inherent Equity cases.

Yours faithfully,

G.Jessel

Dear Enquiries (UK Supreme Court),

I am simply trying to find out whether the Chancellor or Vice-Chancellor sits in the Supreme Court or not and whether the inherent jurisdiction of equity can still be accessed or if it remains hidden.

Hopefully this simplified request will be more agreeable to you.

Yours sincerely,

G.Jessel
