Historical Context Note

In British, the Judicature Act reforms the system of central courts, establishing a High Court of Judicature with its separate divisions, and a Court of Appeal. It also attempts to abolish the judicial functions of the House of Lords, but Gladstone's Liberal government falls before these reforms can be implemented, and the succeeding Tory government led by Disraeli supersedes this with later Judicature Acts.
