Chapter Summary

This chapter offers an analysis of the amendments to the Mt. Scopus Standards of Judicial independence of 2008 that were adopted at the Vienna 2011 and Ghent 2012 conferences. These amendments dealt with a number of central issues that warranted the study and deliberation of the International Project of Judicial Independence. The chapter also outlines the agenda for future discussions at the project's next conferences. It focuses on the legal profession and judicial independence, global judicial ethics codes, and online justice or Online Dispute Resolution ("ODR"). The chapter offers a brief report on the development of the Project of Judicial Independence of the association of judicial Independence and World Peace ("JIWP" Association) and the drafting of significant international standards. The Association brought attention to cases of adverse legislation touching upon judicial independence and the rule of law in other jurisdictions.
