While the eyes of the world are on Assange and a clash of the titans.....a Scottish female judge boldly goes....

The entire world is apparently going to be watching the Supreme Court decide the fate of Julian Assange (subject to Strasbourg having a go too) tomorrow.  It will see a clash of the titans in Dinah Rose QC taking on Clare Montgomery QC. If two giants of advocacy collide - do they both disappear into a rhetorical black hole?  We will find out tomorrow.  BTW, I was once DRQC's mini-pupil.

More interestingly, there is a female Scottish judge sitting in the Privy Council, Lady Paton - as the second ever female Senator of the the College of Justice - is she the first female Scots judge to sit in the JCPC?
