Other than logical ideas such as more expert opinions, less chance of bias, a more balanced panel of judges perhaps etc. what are the formal reasons for more judges sitting in higher courts and are there any sources that talk about this?

Just wishing to use it for a point in an essay about judges and hard decisions.

Thanks in advance

Less likely to get a rogue decision and more likely to be higher quality.
For really important decisions then you would have a full court. Reasoning may differ and one judge may see r use a line of argument not seen by another. Due to the high degree of public scrutiny, then judges are aware many lawyers and other courts may be watching and relying in what they say.

Sources that talk about it probably most books on English Legal System.
