ABSTRACT
LIKE it or not, our legal system has become a subject of public comment. Quite apart from the often controversial sentences handed down by the courts, there has been the unedifying spectacle of an open dispute between Justice Minister Alan Shatter and the judiciary. For quite some time now, however, one of the greatest scandals is that it takes so long for many cases to actually come to court. Not before time, Chief Justice Susan Denham has announced that the lengthy legal holidays will be curtailed in a bid to clear the backlog of cases.
