Abstract

Judges in common law countries make decisions within a context of accountability created by constitutions, statute law, case law, the parties in the case, and the decision itself. Here the process is likened to the rungs on a ladder that allow one to reach an apple.

Keywords: common law, judges, law, courts, judge made law, judicial, decision
