The importance of a functional judiciary for the economy is a time-honoured belief held by economists. Especially in recent years, this theory has been confirmed by several studies exposing the connection between courts’ quality and economic development.

This dissertation offers an analysis of judicial performance from an economic perspective. Court performance is understood as a multidimensional concept having at least three dimensions, namely: independence, efficiency and accessibility
