Title Communication Policies, Media Representations and Judicial Legitimacy. A Case Study on Argentina´s Supreme Court Summary This work analyzes the complex role of mass media in building Court´s public image and, indirectly, in its legitimacy. Through a case study of the Supreme Court of Argentine Republic, the article identifies the cultural mechanisms relevant for the construction of social imaginaries regarding the performance of Judicial Power. To do this, the three main argentine newspapers are analyzed and the newsmaking rationale is reconstructed, being the latter confronted with the underlying principle that guides the conduct of the court. Keywords Communication Policy, Courts, Legitimacy, Mass Media, Social Representations.
