The television transmission of the judgements of the Supreme Court is an instrument of open justice, as it opens access to the population and the professionals to every discussion held, with an educational and prophylactic effect and, more than that, pointing out a complete transparency of the judgements and discussions. No issue is set aside analysis and critics, with the broader disclosure provided by the television. Differently from other courts, the divergence is public, in addition to being merely published. Nothing, thus, runs in secrecy of justice. Tormented issues, such as anencephalic fetuses, demarcation of land for Indians and, also, everyday issues, that would not reach the Supreme Court in other countries, among us they are discussed in view of the Constitution, with open access and disclosure to the population in general. So, what happens in Brazil is that the Supreme Court plays the role of a Constitutional Court and, at the same time, performs the ultimate judgment of issues related to common justice, and for this matter becomes a well-known court of the population, which causes a closer relationship between the Judiciary and the informational society. This relationship is necessary for the subjective rights and human right of action, as it brings effectiveness to the population that the judiciary is present and real.

The access to justice is a fundamental right, and essential to the vigor of the rule of law, as, in current days, it is through the judiciary power that the citizens, who feel damaged in its rights, can rely on the judicial system, in order to receive judicial protection. Hobbes would be astonished if he had conscious, that one day the judiciary power would become the Leviathan he had imagined, with the aim to pacify the social environment. In the context of the digital proceeding, the access to justice, that is, the access to the judicial system, arising the Leviathan for the benefit of the pacification of the environment was intensified, assuring the effectiveness of such fundamental right.

This is one of the possibilities to promote "open justice" that seeks to bring information through digital means to the people, in compliance with the principle of transparency, publicity and efficiency, whose objective is the realization of the rights foreseen in the legal order.
