Martin Partington: Spotlight on the Justice System

Keeping the English Legal System under review

Studying judges

with 2 comments

On Tuesday 16 November the Faculty of Laws at University College London launched a new Judicial Institute. The opening event  was a panel discussion on ‘The Future of Judging’. At a time when the judiciary is at an important crossroads, this event explored the changing roles of judges and the challenges facing the modern judiciary as a result of developments in politics and society, science and technology, law, litigation and globalisation.

This is an extremely important research initiative that should throw considerable light on a part of the legal system that has not hitherto been the subject of a great deal of empirical research.

  1. Just saw this post, looking forward to future publications by the UCL Judicial Institute. You’ve mentioned that there was a panel discussion on the future of judging, please let me know if you come across a transcript /audio recording/ article on what was discussed. Unfortunately there was no related media on the UCL JI website.
