Judging the judges – identifying the stand-outs among the judiciary

The good, the bad and the ugly – we asked litigators to identify the judges that – for better or worse – stand out among the judiciary

The 2016 Legal Business judicial survey was not just focused on the overall strengths and weaknesses of the judiciary, it also asked respondents for their views on individual judges they have appeared before. There were some obvious favourites, and one outright villain (no prizes for guessing), and somewhere in between were several judges who impressed and disappointed in equal measure.
