This book investigates the place of emotion in judicial work. Grounded in empirical data—interviews, observations and surveys—it shows how judicial officers understand, experience, display, manage and deploy emotions in their everyday work, in light of their fundamental commitment to impartiality.
A key insight is that emotion, emotional capacities and emotion work are integral to impartial judicial practice. Building on a growing interest in emotion across many fields, this book will be of considerable importance to legal, socio-legal and social sciences scholars, the judiciary, legal practitioners and all users of the courts.
