Place for resolution before litigation

16 Sep 2019

If you're a fan of The Godfather then you'll already recognise the scene:

The undertaker explains: "I said to my wife, for justice, we must go to Don Corleone."

The Godfather considers what he is being asked to do "is not justice". Don Corleone determines himself what "justice" would be in the particular case. He asks the undertaker to "consider this justice a gift on my daughter's wedding day."

The infamous part of the movie takes reference in BLM's latest article for The Scotsman by Greg MacDougall which explores the notion, if justice is undefinable and immeasurable, potentially meaning different things to different people, how can we properly gauge access to justice?
