“The role of judges is to interpret the laws that parliament passes,” said Law Society of England and Wales president Simon Davis.
“They do so impartially, without fear or favour. We should take pride in our system of justice which provides equality before the law.
“You only have to look around the world to see what happens when the rule of law begins to erode.
“I would urge influential voices – whether in the media or in politics – to avoid intemperate language and resolve to protect and promote the rule of law, supporting our judiciary, independent from interference.”
