Boni Judicis Est Ampliare Justitiam Law and Legal Definition

The maxim boni judicis est ampliare justitiam signifies that it is the duty of a good judge to make precedents in the amplification of justice. It is the duty of every judge to make a just decree reach as far as possible, and to give the suitors before him the fullest protection he can in the shortest way that the law has left open. [Commonwealth v. Erie & N. E. R. Co., 27 Pa. 339, 378 (Pa. 1855)].
