Summer exhibition 2011
Supreme Courts across the world
Ever wondered who appoints the top judges in Canada, or how many cases are heard by India’s highest court every year?
Find the answers to these questions and many more in our summer mini-exhibition, which profiles a total of ten different Supreme Courts from across the globe.
The courts chosen reflect a diverse geography – from the United States and France to South Africa and New Zealand – as well as a range of legal frameworks, including both common law and civil law systems. For each court, basic information about its role and jurisdiction is accompanied by recent photographs.
The exhibition is situated in the lobby area outside Court 1 on the 2nd Floor and is open during normal court opening hours.
