Description : Can courts and judges be evaluated? Or are the ideals of justice incompatible with quality measurement? These questions are addressed by research into the experience of nine European countries. Issues of independence and accountability are analysed by examining the role of the courts as a branch of government that maintains legitimacy and authority as well as providing a public service. This appreciation broadens the conception of accountability, while highlighting that independence is but a means to the end of impartiality. The interests, values and traditions of the law, public management and civil society are each recognised as being relevant to judicial evaluation. The criteria proposed for the effective evaluation of courts include a respect for the core values and roles of courts, a meaningful place for all actors, including the public, and means to ensure that evaluations have consequences in the day to day operations of justice systems. Drawing on practical examples, the book concludes with proposals that may enhance impartiality, accountability and democracy in the administration of justice.

Description : The Judicial Process: Law, Courts, and Judicial Politics is an all-new, concise yet comprehensive core text that introduces students to the nature and significance of the judicial process in the United States and across the globe. It is social scientific in its approach, situating the role of the courts and their impact on public policy within a strong foundation in legal theory, or political jurisprudence, as well as legal scholarship. Authors Christopher P. Banks and David M. O’Brien do not shy away from the politics of the judicial process, and offer unique insight into cutting-edge and highly relevant issues. In its distinctive boxes, “Contemporary Controversies over Courts” and “In Comparative Perspective,” the text examines topics such as the dispute pyramid, the law and morality of same-sex marriages, the “hardball politics” of judicial selection, plea bargaining trends, the right to counsel and “pay as you go” justice, judicial decisions limiting the availability of class actions, constitutional courts in Europe, the judicial role in creating major social change, and the role lawyers, juries and alternative dispute resolution techniques play in the U.S. and throughout the world. Photos, cartoons, charts, and graphs are used throughout the text to facilitate student learning and highlight key aspects of the judicial process.

Each chapter is full of meanigful quotation and value-neutral elucidation, and each is written in a rainwater-clear prose that makes the book nonpareil for learning what, in terms of law and public policy, abortion in the U.S. is all about." – ALA Booklist

Description : "The bedrock of our democracy is the rule of law. The only way we can preserve it is to careful maintain a fair and impartial judiciary in which judges can make decisions independent of the political winds that are blowing. the primary objective if judicial independence is to avoid improper influence on the court from the other branches of government or from private and partisan interests. With an independent judiciary in Oklahoma, free from the wiles of partisan and special interest politics, everyone wins. This book reveals never-before-published facts of the Supreme Court scandal of the 1960s and chronicles the citizens' passage of sweeping court reform that has produced a successful and scandal-free judicial system for nearly 50 years. In addition the author meticulously lays out his case against proposed partisan election of Supreme Court justices, age limits for judges, and giving the state legislature over the selection of judges at all levels."--back cover.

Description : Miller proposes that we focus our energies on the question of how the Constitution is to function in an era of rapid and fundamental social change. He introduces this provocative collection of essays with the observation that American constitutional theory has arrived at a dead-end, largely because it has been perceived as constitutional law rather than a form of political theory. He puts this view into sharp perspective by looking at what are in effect, three constitutions--the political, the economic, and the emergent corporate instrument. He analyzes important issues that confront the Supreme Court, policymakers, and theorists, such as the expansion of government control, the Court as a political mechanism, the power of corporations, politics and the First Amendment, the challenge of nuclear weapons, and questions relating to social justice, including equal protection and the right to employment.
