The economic impact of a well-functioning justice system has been verified in various studies identifying the strong correlations between the improvement of court efficiency and the growth rate of the economy, and businesses’ perception of judicial independence and the growth in productivity. Thus, examining the relevant performance of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) is a very interesting exercise. This examination focuses on its case management process, in particular whether the procedures in place promote the efficient handling of the cases lodged and whether their timely resolution could be enhanced. The assessment and accountability tools in place at the CJEU are also examined. The examination’s findings will feed some future considerations in view of the possible roles of the CJEU in the EU institutional regime.
