Abstract

Judicial appointment processes have significant potential to promote or hinder diversity. This comment considers recent changes in the United Kingdom to the judicial appointments process designed to increase diversity. It explores the potential implications of the Crime and Courts Act 2013 (UK) for diversity in the UK Supreme Court, and the lessons from these reforms for Australian policy-makers.

Keywords: Judicial appointments, Diversity, Equal Opportunities, Courts, Australia, United Kingdom
