The Deputy President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom is the second most senior judge of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, after the President of the Supreme Court. The office is equivalent to the now-defunct position of Second Senior Lord of Appeal in Ordinary, also known as the Second Senior Law Lord, who was the second highest-ranking Lord of Appeal in Ordinary.

The office is currently held by Baroness Hale of Richmond, having succeeded Lord Hope of Craighead on his retirement on June 26, 2013. Lord Hope had been the Second Senior Lord of Appeal in Ordinary in 2009, when the judicial functions of the House of Lords were transferred to the new Supreme Court on 1 October 2009 under the provisions of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005.

By Royal Warrant published on October 1, 2009, Queen Elizabeth II established a place for the Deputy President of the Supreme Court in the order of precedence: the Deputy President of the Supreme Court ranks after the Master of the Rolls and before the other Justices of the Supreme Court.[3]
