Abstract

A short abstract of the Thesis entitled "The Place of Judiciary in the Modern State, with special reference to the English Juduciary". This thesis is a study of the working of the English Judiciary and some of its important problems, It consists of three parts, Part I deals with the civil courts: County Courts, Circuits, the High Court of Justice, the Court of Appeal and the House of Lords. Part II treats the criminal courts: Courts of Summery Jurisdiction, Courts of Quarter Sessions, the Assizes (including the Central Criminal Court), the King's Bench Division and the Court of Criminal Appeal. In part III are discussed such problems as the jury, legal aid to the poor and a ministry of justice. The material is drawn primarily from laws, judicial decisions, parliamentary debates, reports of royal commissions and departmental committees, civil and criminal judicial statistics and secondarily from treatises of recognized authorities, books on special topics, pamphlets, periodicals, newspapers and interviews. Its collection, collation and presentation in the form of a thesis represent exclusively as my own work. At the end of the Thesis will be found a table of statutes and a full bibliography.
