Abstract

Millions of people and organisations benefit from using social media. Court staff can also benefit from using it. In particular, they can inform the public about recent judgments and about how courts function. At this point, few courts in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom use social media. This article examines why. Ultimately, it argues that Australian court staff should consider using social media to increase confidence in the judiciary.
