Lord Stephens, current Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, reflects on his experiences as a student at Manchester.

“I am immensely proud of being a graduate of Manchester University. Currently I have the privilege of being unique in that I am the only Supreme Court Justice who was educated outside of Oxbridge. I hope we will see other graduates of Manchester University on the Supreme Court bench.

Manchester University provided me with a wonderful legal education. I had the great privilege of being taught by leading academics who were authors of authoritative textbooks. Attending the Law School at Manchester University was, for me, a wonderful foundation for my legal career and I am enormously grateful for the time I spent there.”
