Please can you advise when Queen Elizabeth the Second shall be appointing a new Vice Chancellor to sit and hear inherent Equity cases under the original jurisdiction of Equity as previously heard in the High Court of Equity.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Fry,

Thank you for your email of 10 March 2016. Please note that the Judicial Appointments Commission (JAC) is an independent body that selects candidates for judicial office in courts and tribunals in England and Wales, and for some tribunals with UK-wide jurisdiction.

Candidates are recommended for offices such as the High Court, Upper Tribunals and all others listed in Schedule 14 of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 (CRA), as amended by the Crime and Courts Act 2013. The JAC does not select magistrates or judicial office-holders for the UK Supreme Court.

Unfortunately, we do not hold the information requested and cannot advise on the appointment of the Vice Chancellor.

Kind regards,

Mrs Adefunke Oloniyo
Complaints Manager| Judicial Appointments Commission | 1st Floor, Zone A, 102 Petty France, London, SW1H 9AJ | Tel 020 3334 6404

" Law is nothing without equity, and equity is everything, even without Law. Those who perceive what is just and what is unjust only through the eyes of the law, never see it as well as those who behold it with the eyes of equity. Law may be looked upon, in some manner, as an assistance for those who have a weak perception of right and wrong, in the same way that optical glasses, are useful for those who are shortsighted, or those whose visual organs are deficient. Equity, in its true and genuine meaning, is the soul and spirit of the law; positive law is construed, and rational law is made by it. "
