|Title:||Temperament as a Criterion for Judicial Performance Evaluation||Contributor(s):||Colbran, Stephen (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1758||Abstract:||This article proposes six measures of judicial temperament that maybe used in an Australian pilot program for judicial performanceevaluation. The measures are evaluated by a national survey of barristers' temperament ratings of Supreme and Federal Court judges.Barristers who responded to the survey thought that the proposedmeasures of judicial temperament were very important measures of judicial performance. The measures have a high degree of internal consistency. The article also examines aspects of judicial temperament as a measure of judicial performance. These aspects include: identifying potential measures of judicial temperament; whether judicial temperament differs between trial and appellate judges; whether judicial gender affects temperament; whether judicial temperament deteriorates with age or experience; whether older judges treat junior barristers differently.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||University of Tasmania Law Review, 21(1), p. 62-78||Publisher:||University of Tasmania||Place of Publication:||Hobart||ISSN:||0082-2108||Field of Research (FOR):||180121 Legal Practice, Lawyering and the Legal Profession||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.heinonline.org/HOL/Page?collection=journals&handle=hein.journals/utasman21&id=68||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 104
