Interest in social science and empirical analyses of law, courts and specifically the politics of judges has never been higher or more salient. Consequently, there is a strong need for theoretical work on the research that focuses on courts, judges and the judicial process. The Routledge Handbook of Judicial Behavior provides the most up to date examination of scholarship across the entire spectrum of judicial politics and behavior, written by a combination of currently prominent scholars and the emergent next generation of researchers. Unlike almost all other volumes, this Handbook examines judicial behavior from both an American and Comparative perspective.? Part 1 provides a broad overview of the dominant Theoretical and Methodological perspectives used to examine and understand judicial behavior, Part 2 offers an in-depth analysis of the various current scholarly areas examining the U.S. Supreme Court, Part 3 moves from the Supreme Court to examining other U.S. federal and state courts, and Part 4 presents a comprehensive overview of Comparative Judicial Politics and Transnational Courts. Each author in this volume provides perspectives on the most current methodological and substantive approaches in their respective areas, along with suggestions for future research. The chapters contained within will generate additional scholarly and public interest by focusing on topics most salient to the academic, legal and policy communities.

A sequel to Bauer and Dawuni's pioneering study on gender and the judiciary in Africa (Routledge, 2016), International Courts and the African Woman Judge examines questions on gender diversity, representative benches, and international courts by focusing on women judges from the continent of Africa. Drawing from postcolonial feminism, feminist institutionalism, feminist legal theory, and legal narratives, this book provides fresh and detailed narratives of seven women judges that challenge existing discourse on gender diversity in international courts. It answers important questions about how the politics of judicial appointments, gender, geographic location, class, and professional capital combine to shape the lives of women judges who sit on international courts and argues the need to disaggregate gender diversity with a view to understanding intra-group differences. International Courts and the African Woman Judge will be of interest to a variety of audiences including governments, policy makers, civil society organizations, students of gender studies, and feminist activists interested in all questions of gender and judging.

Politics And The Courts

In the public law area, it has been noted that judicial decisionmaking is not always objective, that the courts are not constrained by the law and the facts of the case, and that courts are actually policymakers influenced by extraneous factors having little to do with the legal and factual matters of a case. Yarnold argues that the public law area has discarded the traditional view of the judiciary as a passive interpreter of the law. She examines political and environmental variables that have been used to explain judicial outcomes and develops an original theory of public law explaining under what circumstances political variables impact court decisions, and when region, as an environmental variable, is related to judicial outcomes.

Each chapter outlines an agenda for future research.

Sir Oliver Popplewell became, in his own words, officially ‘judicially senile’ after a distinguished career at the Bar, as a High court judge specialising in defamation, arbitration and sports law - an appropriate niche for a Cambridge cricket Blue. And in public life he achieved prominence as chairman of important public enquiries such as the Bradford Stadium disaster. Hallmark: A Judge's Life at Oxford, the sequel to his acclaimed autobiography, Benchmark: Life, Laughter and the Law, tells how he went to Oxford University to read Philosophy, Politics and Economics as the oldest undergraduate ever to be admitted - with considerable press and media coverage and good-natured amusement among family and friends._x000D_ _x000D_ Here is a sharply observed, sympathetic yet critical picture of modern Oxford seen from the perspective of a leading judge and public figure who could contrast this experience with his Cambridge days from the late 1940s - a more formal time of compulsory wearing of gowns in town, back to college by 10.00 pm and when dons were addressed as ‘Sir’. But academic rigour is maintained and Oliver Popplewell survives the stress of admission - with no privileges for former distinction. He admires his tutors, young enough to be his children but all ‘obviously fearfully clever’. He grapples with the courses, finding economics surprisingly disappointing, statistics a waste of valuable time, philosophy a struggle - for an essentially practical legal mind - but politics richly fulfilling. He takes his examinations, frets over results and obtains his degree._x000D_ _x000D_ But this is much more than the story of an older student. It is a hugely entertaining account of a life lived to the full. Oxford is woven into a rich social and cultural pattern and serves as a vantage point. He throws himself into sport - rugby, cricket and real tennis. His interests include the Oxford Union, journalism for the Oxford Mail, The Sunday Times, with reviews for the Times Higher Educational Supplement and he appears on BBC TV and radio. He does not neglect the law: he advises those preparing for the Bar and comments with value for professionals and lay-people alike on current legal issues. There is a cavalcade of leading personalities from academia, the law, entertainment, the arts and business. Also a stream of comment on contemporary life - penetrating, even acerbic but always sympathetic. Sir Oliver takes his readers into his confidence, shares his experience and presents a unique facet of a fascinating life which can serve as a warm but sharply observed social and cultural history of modern Britain.
