This article presents a new perspective on ‘timeliness’ through developing novel hypotheses and methodologies to explain behavioural and structural determinants of civil case disposition time. Our proposed more comprehensive methodology presents a powerful explanatory tool to inform future empirical investigation, as well as laying foundations for the creation of robust time standards against which civil courts can be more accurately measured, monitored and compared across jurisdictions.
