Judicial Independence and the Administration of the Judiciary in Trinidad and Tobago
Douglas Mendes
This paper aims firstly to put the recent debate in Trinidad and Tobago over the independence of the judiciary in a theoretical framework. Then briefly examines the constitutional mechanisms which seek to ensure an independent judiciary. Against the backdrop, then discusses the considerations which impact upon the independence of the judiciary in so far as control over the administration of justince is concerned.
