Judicial Corrosion: Outlines of a Theory

John Kleinig

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Even judiciaries that do not have histories of serious or pervasive corruption need to be watchful lest what I refer to as judicial corrosion occurs. Drawing on studies of institutional entropy, I identify some of the external and internal sources of such corrosion and comment briefly on challenges that face its prevention or repair within the judicial realm.
