Italian Justice: An Opportunistic System

Economic systems’ quality and efficiency are vitally important for a country’s development. This is especially true when it comes to the legal system. It is critical to have a well-functioning legal system in order to secure contract execution and property rights protection [1]. Italy appears to be characterised by a clogged judicial system and great sluggishness [2]. The high level of litigation in Italy may be due to the regulatory framework’s disproportionate size and lack of transparency, the mutability of legal criteria, and the vast number of lawyers, all of which drown the courts. There are five actors that are concerned about the length of a lawsuit. both parties, their attorneys, and the judge Three of them have a vested interest in delaying the procedure, one (the judge) is an impartial observer, and the plaintiff is the only one who stands to benefit from it being completed as quickly as feasible. The degree of public resources required to manage this public service, as well as the outcomes obtained, are linked to the quality of this service, which is defined elsewhere by the quickness of court cases and procedures. The number of judges paid from public funds in Italy is comparable to that of other European countries. When compared to European systems, however, Italian justice is inefficient and slow. The goal of this study is to paint a picture of judicial efficiency in Italy by identifying key factors that influence the length of civil processes, notably in terms of lawyers’ roles. The results demonstrate that there is a positive association between the number of lawyers and the number of civil procedures, indicating that lawyers are opportunistic.
