Dear Readers
Welcome to the first issue of the International Journal of Court Administration's
1311 volume. In this issue, some authors explore various methods of measuring
court and judicial performance, others explore technological developments in
courts, and we have one looking at court response to Covid. We get to visit India,
Hungary, United States of America, the Netherlands, Italy, and the European
Union. Finally, we have one book review on The Legal Legacy of the Special Court
for Sierra Leone (2020), by Charles C. Jalloh. We hope that you enjoy the issue.
Dinesh Kumar and Ram Manohar Singh, with the objective of exploring court
performance and developing its scale, have conducted two interlocking studies
in Exploring Court Performance and Developing its Scale. In study 1, they
explored court performance conceptually. They identified the indicators of court
performance through in-depth interviews of legal professionals and clients
from the district courts of the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
Interviews were analysed using thematic analysis. Based on interviews, they
generated items and refined them by using a pilot study. After that, in Study 2,
they surveyed court stakeholders to assess measurement dimensionality and
reliability. The scale's dimensionality was tested using exploratory factor analysis
and reliability was tested using Cronbach's alpha scores. The scale indicated three
dimensions: quality of judicial activity, access to justice, and public trust, and
excellent internal consistency reliability. This scale can be used to measure court
performance by taking responses from legal professionals.
