About the Book

This book provides decisive guidance on the techniques in counting and classifying cases, which are applicable in any court system and also advances the use of sophisticated equilibrium modeling techniques in determining the optimal quantity of cases and timelines from filing to disposition. Crucially, this book also provides a detailed exposition on the application of twenty-nine statistical formula subdivided into twelve productivity metrics, eight time lag metrics, five civil case activity efficiency metrics, and four judicial resource management metrics. These metrics provide a solid basis for the effective management and mobilization of judicial resources. The book also uses regression analyses in analyzing the factors which explain court productivity in the Jamaican court system and found decisively that the single most important factor explaining court productivity in the civil and criminal jurisdictions of the parish courts was the demand for judicial services, suggesting that judges respond positively to increased demand by increasing output.
