This book examines the vocation of being a judge. It covers training, discipline and removal of judges as well as their position in the broader context as law-makers and servants of society.

The book is both comparative and practical while also examining the theory and jurisprudence of judging. It is full of practical examples drawn from the author's extensive experience and numerous contacts within the judiciary around the world.

It examines their relationship to the societies they are representing and answerable to and their position and responsibilities as part of an international judicial brotherhood.

Although based in the Caribbean, the author is well known throughout the Commonwealth and in the United States as a writer on constitutional law and ethics. Sir Fred Phillips is the former Governor, St. Kitts/Nevis/Anguilia and a Barrister-at-Law and member of the Middle Temple. He is the author of six books on constitutional law and ethics of the legal profession
