Defying Intervention

by Armen Dumanian

This article seeks to validate the necessity of an independent judicial system within the United Kingdom. With reference to statute, case law and academic publications, there is a consensus amongst legal scholars that nonjudicial interests, despite their alleged benefit to society, are capable of infringing on the rights and freedoms of the citizens they intend to protect. Therefore, in order to uphold the democratic value of the United Kingdom, judges should refrain from devising verdicts based on interests which exist outside of the law, ensuring impartiality and equity.
