C5 : Judicial oversight and accountability: the rise of the watchdog

How can judges be independent, and at the same time accountable and subject to supervision? Are emerging Judicial Commissions necessary to fight corruption, or are they really about controlling an independent judiciary? Should oversight be limited to judicial personal behaviour, rather than their undertaking of their duties ? What is the role of legal professional associations in judicial oversight ? Should Judicial Commissions be investigator, prosecutor, and tribunal for the airing of grievances against judicial officers ?
