To what extent must we critically examine the procedure and methods of judging and how we communicate our decisions? This panel will look at how judges explain their decisions and whether they should change. It will look at judgment writing as well as communicating and disseminating decisions. Should courts expand media coverage of what they do? This panel will also discuss how legal institutions must remain relevant.
