The doctrine of the “separation of powers” has been widely practiced that the state is divided into the separate and distinct branches (Executive, Legislature and Judiciary). However, this doctrine was not carried out thoroughly in the United Kingdom: although, according to the provision, the members of the Executive (the Government) cannot at the same time be the members of the Legislature (Parliament), in the office of the Lord Chancellor, the three branches were fused. Analyses of the article written by Lorne Neudorf‚Äôs The Supreme Court and the New Judicial Independence¬†indicate that the establishment of the Supreme Court imported a new and much broader conception of judicial independence into the constitutional landscape, which protects the rule of law from direct influence by the Executive and Legislature. The new Supreme Court now interacts with the other branches as a distinct institution instead of working alongside them as a component of the Government and Parliament. This article then argues the value of the judicial activism and transparency of the Court.

Most constitutional theories require that the judiciary is separate from and independent of the Government and Parliament, in order to ensure the rule of law, in other words, to ensure that the law is enforced impartially and consistently no matter who is in power, and without undue influence from any other source.
