This Article explores the implications of different proposals for reforms by emphasizing a perspective that relates the proposals to the performance of the judiciary during the military regime in Chile. Part I of this Article describes the role of the judiciary prior to the coup and discusses its response to the human rights abuses of the military regime. Part II presents the principal proposals for reform and discusses them against this historic background. Part III of this Article suggests that these proposals offer a more radical change in the role of the judiciary in Chile than an examination of the individual proposals might suggest.
