The media’s treatment of the work of the courts has changed greatly in recent years. The appointment of specialist journalists and media coverage of public commissions of inquiry have led to a major increase in trust in public opinion with respect to the courts. Yet, it is not certain that people have a better understanding of the operation and function of the courts, as can be seen from public reactions to certain highly mediatized decisions. Bound by their duty of reserve, judges cannot comment on their own decisions, and the heads of the various courts hesitate to develop media communication strategies. This pilot project provides for developing a communication plan designed to increase the media presence of courts and foster better understanding of their work.
