The Contribution of Judges to Society
This article proposes that the social function of judges has evolved in line with the changes that have occurred in our societies, and so it must always be contextualised. The basic guarantee which judges should provide from the point of view of their social function is translated into offering a solution to the conflicts of legitimate rights and interests, and therefore the achievements must be viewed on the basis of the kind of judge acting in each case. Nonetheless, it can be seen that, in practice, a number of obstacles exist which prevent this provision from being real and effective and this makes it necessary to address this issue.
