Title: Of Vulcans and Values: Judicial Decision-Making and Implications for Judicial Education
Author: Biderman, Paul
Abstract: This article begins by analyzing scholarly works which have addressed the role of a judge's personal values in the work of the judiciary. I will then attempt to identify where values clearly or arguably enter decisions, not because judges necessarily want them to but because the legal system compels it. In particular, I will explore that role not only in the more visible context of monumental appellate decisions, but also in the seemingly routine actions of every judge who sits on a bench. I will then review some guidelines that have been offered for appropriate application of values in the judicial process. The article will conclude by suggesting ways in which judicial education programming can assist judges as they prepare to exercise their responsibility to apply their values fairly and wisely.
