The paper assesses the role of the judiciary in upholding the rule of law in Bangladesh. The study contends that the judiciary is minimally a necessary indicator that plays a vital role for upholding the rule of law in a country. Although this layer is not exhaustive in the measurement of degree of the rule of law but this is minimally a necessary yardstick for judging the rule of law prevalent in Bangladesh. The study argues that without progress of this area the rule of law to the large extent would remain meaningless and dysfunctional.
