Evening Tour of the Supreme Court and 'Law and Nationhood' exhibition

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 24th Jan 2018

At the Supreme Court, Justices make decisions that are relevant to everyday lives and help shape our society. Who has the right to trigger Brexit? Can parents take their children on holiday during term time? Can a gay couple be denied a hotel room because of the owners' religious beliefs?

This special evening tour of the Supreme Court offers you the chance to take an intimate guided tour of the highest court in the United Kingdom, including all three unique courtrooms and the Justices' private library, followed by an exclusive guided walkthrough of the Law and Nationhood: South Asia at 70 exhibition with curator Charlotte de Mille.

Law and Nationhood explores the conspicuous role that law legality played in the pre- and post-independent histories of India and Pakistan by focusing on six prominent barrister-politicians, each having studied law in England, and called to Bar at different Inns of Courts in London through the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The exhibition highlights the shared legal background of central figures, Ambedkar, Gandhi, Iqbal, Jinnah, Krishna Varma, and Nehru, drawing on little-known documents from their respective Inns of Court.

Key exhibits include admission and call papers, dress robes from the Supreme Courts of both India and Pakistan, private correspondence relating to the disbarment of Gandhi and Krishna Varma at Inner Temple, photographs from the collection of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, and rare photographs of Gandhi, Jinnah, and Nehru in the 1930s and 1940s.

Cost: £12.5
