Oxford and Director of the FLJS, will open the workshop 'How Judges Decide'. Sir Stephen Sedley and Professor Alan Paterson OBE, will then comment on the lecture of the same title ‘How Judges Decide’, given by Justice Robert Sharpe of the Ontario Court of Appeal, in the Leonard Wolfson Auditorium, Wolfson College, the previous evening.

This will be followed by a roundtable discussion of academics and judges, which includes contributions from judges of diverse jurisdiction and traditions, and from academics who have reflected on the wider issues relating to judicial decision-making.

As with the lecture, the workshop will examine the underlying principles, the informal guidelines, the constraints and limitations used by judges.
