The competition of civil justice systems is a relatively new process in the EU area. In this process competing governments create the offer for law while, litigating parties create the demand for conflict resolution. The interaction between these parties is not fully clear. In this paper, I argue that the demand side is dominated by lawyers. This domination is a consequence of the lawyers market, the good they provide and the characteristics of the law. This domination influences the output of the demand side and might distort the proper working of the competition of civil justice systems.
