Abstract

The objective of a judicial proceeding includes both a formal and a substantive aspect. On the formal level, the judicial process is a method for deciding the questions in dispute. On the substantive level, the judicial process is intended to be a just method of deciding questions in dispute. This aspect of the judicial process raises the question that is the focus of this study - restricting freedom of expression in order to protect the propriety of judicial proceedings and their public image as proper. This paper is an abstract of a book that considers the justification and the scope of a limitation on expressions concerning matters under adjudication that its aim is to protect the propriety of judicial proceedings and their public image as proper.
