This chapter is divided into four sections, the first and the last of which are devoted to this larger context. The first section discusses the position of the Judges' Club in the structure of judicial authority in Egypt. The second section discusses the club's struggle to increase the independence of the judiciary in relation to its defense of democracy. Furthermore, the third section examines the role played by the Judges' Club in the events of 2005. Since becoming highly vocal, the Judges' Club is the most democratic expression of the ordinary judiciary in Egypt. The last section of this chapter is dedicated to exploring the limits of the role of the Judges' Club and the meaning of its political role.
