He became a QC in 1979, and was a Recorder sitting in both criminal and civil courts from 1985 to 1992. Lord Clarke was promoted to the Court of Appeal of England and Wales in 1998 and sworn of the Privy Council. Thereafter, he conducted the Marchioness and Bowbelle Inquiries. Between 2005 and 2009, Lord Clarke served as Master of the Rolls, and was appointed to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom in October 2009. He is the first Justice to be appointed directly to The Supreme Court.
