Abstract: The focus of this paper is the construction of identity within the context of English legal practice and process. Its subject matter is the protracted civil litigation that extended from a brief County Court hearing in 2007 to the Supreme C ourt judgment of Jones v Kernott [2011] UKSC 53 . Taking as its theoretical basis recent work by Hilde Lindemann, Holding and Letting Go: The Social Practice of Personal identities (Oxford University Press, 2014) the author analyses the reported judgments of the appellate courts , as well as a recently recorded first hand narrative account of Mr Kernott , as a means to examining how far long - established legal practices and customs can operate to construct, hold and let go of personal identity .
