This paper aims to analyze the role of transformational leadership within the judicial system, specifically in relation to the role of judges and magistrates as democratic leaders. To achieve this end, the research focuses on three core aspects: 1) It points out the main conceptual references on the three-dimensional theory of law, essential when defining the legal reality or the management and administration that derives from it. 2) It explores the relevance of transformational leadership, considered one of the most debated administrative approaches, which tends to train leaders committed to the organization, society and the group that accompanies them. This vision of leadership allows promoting collective actions, adapting to social demands, generating significant changes within organizational structures. 3) It explores the role of judges as social leaders, called to promote transformations within society, assuming it as a point of balance between the role of the State with citizenship, without losing sight of the human side of the administration of the justice, which is why it invites a permanent revision of the laws, attending to the growing demands of society. The method used for the development of the paper is the hermeneutic-documentary. It concludes in the urgency of transforming the judicial system, ensuring equity and social justice, where the magistrates occupy the place of social leader’s par excellence.
