Abstract

Extract
This chapter uses the concept of a 'New Visibility theory' as a framework for viewing the courts' involvement in the complex contemporary media landscape. Sociologist John Thompson notes that the new visibility 'is a space shaped not only by the constantly changing technologies that enable words and images to be recorded and transmitted ... but also by the institutions and organisations that have an interest in transmitting this content'.1 The courts are one such institution which have, over the space of two decades, both sought out visibility and had visibility imposed on them by changing communications practices. Accordingly, the chapter examines how courts have become increasingly visible, first via the Web 1.0 (predominantly websites) as well as traditional media such as television and, more recently, by Web 2.0 (predominantly social media).
