The first Part of Volume 22 of the Journal of Judicial Administration includes three articles on a range of issues. The first article comes from Binh Tran-Nam and Michael Walpole and examines how costs to taxpayers influence tax dispute resolution routes in the Australian context. The second article, by Dr Pamela D Schulz, discusses the influence and scope of social media and the theoretical impact on the integrity and independence of courts and the judiciary. The final article is by Anthony Gray and Gerard Elmore and reflects upon the constitutionality of the increasing use by the legislature of minimum mandatory sentencing regimes.
The August 2011 issue of the Journal of Judical Administration is full of interesting articles on a range of topics, including, but not limited to, the concept of 360-degree feedback for judicial officers, the media, public perception and how these can impact on judges and the concepts and practices of therapeutic jurisprudence and restorative justice, both in Australia and internationally.
