Tuesday October 23 2012 Report inspiring but must Judiciary really sacrifice quality for concrete? In Summary Reading through the State of the Judiciary report, it is clear that Dr Mutunga is crafting together an efficient machine. The statistics show that between July 2011 and June this year, a total of 428,821 cases were filed. Every judge has an estimated burden of 542 new matters every year.What is responsible for this state of affairs? Is the upsurge a natural phenomenon or are we dealing with an artificial demand caused by an explosion of lawyer-stimulated litigation?My suspicion is that we may be dealing with an artificial demand side-issue reflecting a growing commercialisation of the legal profession. I have just read the State of the Judiciary report that was launched last week. Clearly, the Judiciary is changing quietly but in very fundamental ways.
