Do the media influence the judiciary? Sir Mark Potter TOP

Site thumbnail
Former appeal court judge, Mark Potter, writes this policy brief to assess to what extent the media influence the judiciary. Published by the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society, the brief does concede that in high-profile cases juries may be influenced by the media circus, and judges in looking for public opinion must look to the media for reflection of this. Sir Potter also looks at Lord Neuberger's report on super-injunctions and the Lord Chief Justice's guidance on the use of Twitter during court proceedings.
