In this year's Redmond Barry Lecture, Chief Justice Marilyn Warren discusses changes to the traditional relationship between the courts and the media in recent times, and the trend towards direct court engagement with the community to ensure accountable and open justice in the digital world.

The Hon Marilyn Warren is the Chief Justice of Victoria. In her ten years in that role she has adopted a number of innovative approaches to promoting openness and accessibility in the Victorian justice system, including the development of a Supreme Court communications strategy and reform of the court’s civic engagement.

The annual Redmond Barry Lecture honours the life and work of Sir Redmond Barry (1813–80), founder of the State Library and a key figure in the development of Australia's cultural and intellectual life.
