Judiciary must engage more with public, says ex-Lord Justice of Appeal

Judges continuing to retreat “behind a shell of silence and exclusivity” risk putting the rule of law under threat, former Lord Justice of Appeal Sir Alan Moses has said.

Writing in a new report on judicial independence by the charity Transform Justice, Sir Alan said: “We need to think about a crucial and profound issue which affects us all: how may judicial independence be protected while judges learn to engage and participate in the communities in which they serve?”
