Abstract:

A research study of three magistrates' courts reveals significant variations in their committal rates. It is argued that individual court cultures which have evolved as a consequence of an implicit belief in the concept of local justice provide the prime explanation for these differences. Local cultures generate a shared understanding of decision-making patterns so that magistrates are rarely faced with genuinely contested venue applications.
