A comparison of English practice with the American courts 9 April 2001
By Dr Abdelfattah Toukan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"Judges do not have an easy job. They repeatedly do what the rest of us seek to avoid: make decisions." On that deceptively sympathetic note, David Pannick introduces his critical and irreverent inquiry into what Jeremy Bentham described as "Judge & Co." How are judges appointed, trained, disciplined, criticized, mysticized and publicized? What changes are needed in this important, but hitherto neglected, area of government? As Oliver Wendell Holmes suggested, these questions need to be washed with cynical acid.
The English judge is a unique phenomenon. He rarely gives interviews or appears on television or writes about his job. He does not respond to public criticism. Judges are still expected to obey a standard of conduct that Churchill understood, in the 1950s, to prohibit the Lord Chief Justice from owning a racehorse.
David Pannick warns all those tempted to enter a courtroom of the dangers that lie therein. He compares English practice with the American courts and finds the American system in some respects superior.
