This chapter takes up the impact of globalization on courts, through consideration of the global rule of law movement and the expansion of the international judiciary. The rule of law movement, in which outside actors spend resources to promote judicial reform and independence, obviously expands the external audiences for judicial activity, creating new opportunities to invest in reputation. And recent years have seen a significant proliferation of international courts—now numbering more than twenty-five by some definitions. These courts are interesting environments for testing our theory, because they have from the very beginning sought to merge elements of various legal traditions in defining procedures. We argue that the new global environment has changed the supply and demand of judicial reputation, with a greater emphasis on the collective reputation of courts and the emergence of new external audiences.
