By constitutionalisation is meant the formal recognition of speech/expression as a fundamental principle of democratic society. The mechanisms by which this constitutionalisation has occurred across a number of jurisdictions and the implications for court-related speech will be outlined before consideration is given to some objections to the judicial role it usually implies. II RATIONALES FOR SPEECH AND THEIR RELATION TO COURT REPORTING/COMMENT Intuitively, freedom of speech/expression is thought by many to have a special status among the cherished liberties of individuals.

One way of exploring speech rationales is to consider whether the interests of speakers or listeners are stressed. Where the beneficiary of speech is the audience (as is the case for example in the argument from democracy or the argument from truth) speech claims rest upon what Dworkin has called an argument of ‘policy’ in which the long term interests of the community determine whether the particular exercise of speech is worth protecting. Here, opposing and weightier concerns (eg national security, public confidence in the judiciary or personal reputation) may prevail against speech.

One consequence of the trend towards more formal constitutional protection for speech claims is enhanced levels of judicial and academic interest in other jurisdictions’ attempts to resolve difficult questions about the outer limits of protected speech. The case for domestic incorporation of aspects of US First Amendment jurisprudence was considered by academics and judges in a collection of essays edited by Loveland in 1997. In contrast to the predominantly unreceptive tone of contributions in that collection, Chapters two and five of this book—whilst acknowledging obvious structural differences between the protection of speech/expression interests under the First Amendment and Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights—make the argument that common underlying concerns in the realm of political speech may require the Strasbourg Court to re-examine its deference to national authorities’ restrictions in the field of contempt/criminal defamation.
