There is to be a new Senior President of Tribunals:

The Rt Hon Sir Jeremy Sullivan, Senior President of Tribunals, is to retire on 17 September 2015. Her Majesty The Queen is pleased to approve the appointment of The Rt Hon Lord Justice Ryder (Sir Ernest Nigel Ryder) as the Senior President of Tribunals with effect from 18 September 2015.

I’m terribly, terribly sorry to hear that Sir Jeremy Sullivan is retiring. He was an excellent and well liked judge. Ryder LJ seems like a promising replacement from what I know, though. He was well known in family law circles as a reformer and was I think the originator of the public law protocol which attempted to set hard deadlines for the hearing of public law cases and to frontload the process. In court, he impresses as being very serious, thoughtful and committed.
