"Sometimes the most public spirited thing that you can do with despotic laws like these is to ignore them."

Lord Jonathan Sumption is one of the most decorated lawyers of his generation. Having sat as a judge on the Supreme Court between 2012 and 2018, Sumption presided over a number of the most important cases of the decade, as well as appearing as a barrister for the Hutton Inquiry.

Away from the law, Sumption is a critically acclaimed author and political commentator. He was an outspoken critic of the lockdown measures imposed by the UK government, and has authored numerous books, including Trials Of The State, Law In A Time Of Crisis and five volumes chronicling The Hundred Years War.
