Common law : the courts : role and image.

What is the impact of civil justice?

It's an important role in the government of democratic societies.

The process is subject to review through scrutiny and a hierarchy of appellate courts.

Courts pay attention that law is created,explained,applied.

Individuals have a right to access courts in order to resolve those disputes

that can be decided according to law.

The democratic role of courts in two ways:


* The parties can define and control the dispute

* It allows competing versions of the dispute to be publicly aired and debated.


The two goals of rule-making and authoritative determination of disputes are central to this characterisation of litigation.
