Welcome to the Feminist Judgments Project
The Feminist Judgments Project is a dynamic and innovative research project in which a group of feminist socio-legal scholars have written alternative feminist judgments in a series of significant cases in English law. Rather than simply critiquing existing judgments, the participants have put 'theory into practice' by engaging in a practical, 'real world' exercise of judgment-writing, subject to the same constraints that bind appellate judges. In doing so, they have pioneered a new form of critical socio-legal scholarship, which seeks to demonstrate in a sustained and disciplined way how judgments could have been written and cases could have been decided differently.
The feminist judgments are now published in Feminist Judgments: From Theory to Practice (Hart Publishing September 2010).
