The Master of the Rolls is the Head of Civil Justice and the second most senior judge in England and Wales. In January 2001 Sir Terence Etherton was appointed a High Court Judge, becoming Lord Justice of Appeal in 2008 and Chancellor of the High Court in 2013. Shortly after being appointed Master of the Rolls in October 2016, Sir Terence was one of the three judges forming the divisional court of the High Court in proceedings concerning the use of the royal prerogative for the issue of notification in accordance with Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union (the Lisbon Treaty) (Santos and Miller, Applicants -v- Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, Respondent).

Prior to becoming a judge, he had competed on the British sabre fencing team and qualified for the 1980 Moscow Olympics. He boycotted the Games in response to the USSR’s invasion of Afghanistan.
