  • Lord Justice Fulford to be appointed Vice-President of Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)

    Investigatory Powers Commissioner

    The Lord Chief Justice has today announced https://www.judiciary.uk/announcements/appointment-of-the-vice-president-of-the-court-of-appeal-criminal-division/ that Lord Justice Fulford will succeed Lady Justice Hallett as the Vice-President of the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) following her retirement in October 2019.  At that point, he will return to the role of full-time judge with responsibility for criminal appellate work.


    This means that Lord Justice Fulford will finish his time as Investigatory Powers Commissioner some four months before the end of his three-year appointment.  Arrangements to appoint his successor will commence as quickly as possible.
