What is judicial independence? Why does it matter to the Rule of Law? How can emerging democracies build an independent judiciary, and what does it take to sustain it at a time when political debates are highly polarized and judges have found themselves in the firing line?
In conversation with Bingham Centre Director, Murray Hunt, a panel of three Justices offered personal reflections from their long and distinguished careers on the highest courts of the US, the UK and Canada.
A summary of the event is available.
