Lord Justice John Thomas
12 October 2011
We are pleased to report that alumnus Sir Roger John Laugharne Thomas QC, has been appointed President of the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court of Justice, effective 3 October 2011. The Queen's Bench Division has two roles. It hears a wide range of contract law and personal injury/general negligence cases, but also has special responsibility as a supervisory court. Until 2005, the head of the QBD was the Lord Chief Justice, but the new post of President of the Queen's Bench Division was created under the provisions of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005. Sir John is the third holder of this office.
