Abstract
This article examines the importance and impact of the process of nomination on the appointment of judges in South Africa. The process of judicial appointment has changed dramatically following South Africa’s transition from apartheid to constitutional democracy. In the pre-constitutional era, appointments were made by the State President in Cabinet, with little or no external input beyond that elicited from a small political and legal elite.
