New appointments to Court of Appeal

Mr Justice Kitchin will now be Lord Justice Kitchin (at least from October) and will presumably be taking over the role played so brilliantly by Lord Justice Jacob (as he was), looking after IP cases in the court. Full details are in this announcement which also reveals that Dame Anne Rafferty has been appointed too, from 5 July. Many years ago, when she was a practising barrister, if my memory serves, she gave a talk to a group of German criminal defence lawyers for whom, for reasons too complicated to go into, I organised a study visit to London. In addition, Lewison J become Lewison LJ.
