Abstract

The recent spate and profile of super-injunctions has once again opened up the debate over whether to televise courtroom proceedings. Arguments have been made that such a development would serve to bolster public confidence in the judicial system and would represent a clear manifestation of the principle of open justice. However, Emmanuel Melissaris urges caution and suggests that such benefits are not at all clear and the execution of justice could be complicated by such a change.
