dc.description.abstractThe judiciary (the courts) have been referred to as the ‘third arm of government’ (Brennan 1996). This chapter considers the role of the judiciary in the overall institutional structure that exercises political power of New Zealand society. The author considers the different functions of the judiciary, including the ways in which they function independently of the elected, or political, parts of government in order to restrain how these institutions operate.en_NZ
