Trends in the Judiciary free pdf The term judicial opinion can be a misnomer as rarely are judges' true feelings on legal issues and the work they do made available to the public. Judges are constrained when writing decisions to follow the law and leave personal commentary aside. Through a series of revealing interviews, this book gathers empirical data from judges and justices from different legal systems to provide a scintillating look at how they view their jobs and cope with difficult legal matters. Interviews are conducted according to strict guidelines with a standardized format for consistency. Each chapter begins by describing the region and its style of judicial governance. This is followed by an interview with a judge or justice in the particular jurisdiction. They discuss their careers, personal judicial philosophies, the problems and successes they've experienced, and how theory influences practice in their jurisdiction. Many also discuss transnational relations and several chapters include glossaries that explain unfamiliar terms and acronyms. Each chapter concludes with the interviewer's assessment and observations. This structure allows readers to easily compare the views of judges and to see the similarities, the differences, and the uniqueness of the different legal models and systems. Trends in the Judiciary: Interviews with Judges Across the Globe, Volume Two is the seventh publication in the Interviews with Global Leaders in Policing, Courts, and Prisons series. The broad-based coverage of varying viewpoints in this text encourages a great breadth of understanding of global justice.
