Details

In a very meaningful way, the health of a judicial system may be judged by the care with which its procedural rights are observed.

Now, in a book that takes stock of this important element as it is currently used or abused in a number of the world's legal systems, eighteen outstanding scholars approach the subject through an analysis of the following factors:

  • the theoretical and moral implications of procedural abuses
  • the subjects who commit them
  • the typologies of abusive practices
  • the consequences of abusive practices

    Several authors report on practices in their own countries, revealing distinct evidence of a significant degree of lowered procedural standards in the United States, several European countries, Australia, Japan, and Latin America.

    General and final reports provide a comparative framework for an analytical study that will repay the study of anyone concerned with the fairness of our legal institutions.
