Abstract

One consequence of the judicialisation of politics has been a greater attention paid to courts by the media. Courts may either be an object of coverage in their own right. Alternately, their decisions may attract coverage. Where the level of coverage given to court decisions varies, this gives us an insight into the salience of different cases. This panel deals with these twin issues of representation and salience. It does so at both national and international level, and at the level of the court and at the level of the individual decision.
