Abstract: This study tackles the problem of whether or not public relations practice within different judicial institutions follows a refined style by discussing the concept of public relations and its importance in the development of the judicial system. Besides that, the study identifies procedures for compliance with the rules and standards of this relationship upon considering lawsuits by the judge and dealing with the accused. The study also examines whether or not the procedures of notification and response from all parties of the lawsuit follows a refined style to maintain the performance of the judicial institution in its work to the fullest, and in exchange, preserve the dignity of the accused. The evidence from this study suggests that an internal communication system in the litigation scope should be applied for all litigation proceedings from beginning to end. These procedures must be regulated legislatively in a manner consistent with the general rules and principles governing litigation while taking into consideration the special nature of the judicial system.
