  Judiciary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In law, the judiciary or judicature is the system of courts which administer justice in the name of the sovereign or state, and provide a mechanism for the resolution of disputes.
The term is also used to refer collectively to the judges, magistrates and other adjudicators who form the core of a judiciary, as well as the support personnel who keep the system running smoothly.
Under the doctrine of the separation of powers, the judiciary is the branch of government primarily responsible for interpreting the law.

Thus, independence of the Judiciary is enshrined in the Constitution for the first time, which is rightly considered a historic landmark.
Hence, the Judiciary in Ethiopia constitutes a constitutional organ which acts as a countervailing power to the Executive and the Legislature.
Given the independence of the Judiciary, which is enshrined in the Constitution, the unreserved efforts to fully build the capacity of the Judiciary and the commitment, sincerity and good intention of those on the bench, individuals surely have remedies in the case of infringement of their rights.
