In conversation with Lord Justice Etherton : revisiting the case for a more diverse judiciary.

Rackley, Erika. (2010) 'In conversation with Lord Justice Etherton : revisiting the case for a more diverse judiciary.', Public law. . pp. 655-662.

Abstract

Discusses the debate over the need for a greater judicial diversity of experiences, referring to suggestions by Lord Justice Etherton. Outlines the three main arguments for such an increase in judicial diversity, namely those relating to the democratic legitimacy of the judiciary, arguments for equity and social justice, and notions of "difference" or perspective. Notes arguments surrounding the role of women in the judiciary. Considers the view that certain characteristics such as candidates' sex or ethnicity are irrelevant in comparison to the need for judges to be competent and achieve their position through individual merit.
