Summoned by social media: Why Australian courts should have social media accounts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

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.
