ART OF WRITING JUDGEMENTS
Judgement/order, or by whatever name it is called, is
the outcome of a judicial process. The judicial process can be
described as an act of churning the allegations and counter
allegations with evidence to bring the truth on to the surface.
Basing on the truth so extracted, justice is dispensed to the
parties through judgement. It is therefore imperative to the
judicial officer or any other person performing such duties to
consider the interests of all parties concerned. Otherwise,
injustice may be caused to the cause of justice. Judgement
conveys the perceptive intellect and maturity of the judicial
officer. Judgement is the written version of communication of
court’s findings and its decision. As such the author (member)
must adopt all techniques of effective communication while
writing the order.
