Authored by leading judges, legal academics, and practitioners, deriving from a seminar devised by Chief Justice Winkelmann and Justice Kós for the Institute of Judicial Legal Studies.

Its focus is on how judges have dealt with social, demographic, and economic change, and the difficulties they have faced with the Legislature and the Executive. The book is split in to four parts – each exploring in depth an important topic, but written to be accessible and of interest and value, to a wide range of readers.
