An independent judiciary is a vital cog in the wheel of a democracy. Canons of judicial ethics state that decisions should be made impartially and diligently, without fear or favour.  This session will address and explore the proliferation of online threats to the judiciary and how such threats can impact the rule of law.  The U.S. National Judicial College has endeavoured to survey international and domestic judicial officers on this subject and its findings will be addressed in this presentation.  At the conclusion of this session, and supported by the presenter’s personal experiences assessing the risk of violence to judicial institutions worldwide, participants will have a better understanding as to how this impact ultimately changes their professional conduct and decision making; and why healthy protective intelligence programs are the fulcrum point on which judicial independence balances.
