What is the role of the Supreme Court in Britain?The Supreme Court is the top court for the whole of the United Kingdom. We are an appeal court, so we only hear cases on appeal, and we only hear cases on points of law of general public importance. They have to be difficult, arguable, and not have a clear answer. They have to matter to lots of people, not just to the parties, and they have to be a suitable case in which to try and resolve the issue.
