    Project: Research

    Project Details


    This project aims to undertake the first comprehensive study of institutional and individual factors that facilitate and constrain access to judicial power via the High Courts agenda setting process, special leave. Using quantitative methods, the project expects to generate new and advanced knowledge about the High Courts role as the gatekeeper of judicial power. Expected outcomes include foundational knowledge on the nature and scope of access to judicial power in Australia via policy reports, scholarly articles and datasets. This should provide significant benefits such as important insights on the impact and influence of justices, litigants, lawyers, and governments on High Courts decisions to grant or deny special leave to appeal.
