New Presiding Judge Appointed for Midland Circuit

Ed Pepperall QC

It has today been announced that former member of St Philips, The Hon Mr Justice Pepperall, has been appointed as the next Presiding Judge for the Midland Circuit.   The appointment is made from 1 January 2020, when the current Presiding Judge Mrs Justice Carr steps down, and will run to 31 December 2023.  Having only been appointed to the High Court in 2018 it is a great honour to take such a position and we look forward to seeing him sitting more regularly in Birmingham.

The full announcement from the Courts and Tribunal Judiciary can be found here.
