Leadership and accountability
8.1In Issues Paper 29, we discussed a number of topics that broadly relate to “leadership and accountability”. These included:
- Linkages in the structure of the judiciary;
- Acting Heads of Bench;
- An annual report on the judiciary; and
- Court officers performing judicial functions.
8.2We address each of these matters in this chapter. We also touch on delays in the delivery of reserved judgments, a topic that was not in Issues Paper 29, but which was repeatedly brought to our attention during consultation.
