The Rule of Law


Department of Law lecture: the independence of law?

‘The Rule of Law’ is a phrase much used but little examined. In this lecture Lord Bingham considers how it forms the foundation of a fair and just society, a guarantee of responsible government and the best means yet devised for securing peace and cooperation.

Tom Bingham has held office as Master of the Rolls, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales and senior law lord of the United Kingdom. He became a life peer in 1996. His new book is called The Rule of Law.
