The Honourable Mr Justice Pepperall was officially sworn in by The Lord Chief Justice, The Right Honourable The Lord Burnett of Maldon, in a ceremony at the Royal Courts of Justice yesterday.

Ed, as he is known to most of you, took the Oath of Allegiance and the Judicial Oath before the Lord Chief who was joined on the bench by The President of the Queen’s Bench Division, Sir Brian Leveson and Ed’s former stablemate at No.2 Fountain Court (latterly St Philips Chambers) Sir Andrew McFarlane, The President of the Family Division. On what was a very proud day for Ed and for St Philips, Court 4 of the RCJ was full of Ed’s family, friends and colleagues to witness his appointment to the Queen’s Bench Division and to wish him well in his new role.
