Better administering justice for better judging: the research project called MAJICE in French (Mieux administrer la justice en interne et dans les pays du Conseil de l’Europe) led by the teams of the universities of Limoges, Poitiers and Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne under the supervision of the National Research Agency, in the context of the research program called Governing and administering, meant to analyze three fundamental sections of the French judicial system: administrative justice, criminal justice and civil justice. The aim was to understand common and specific features of these three jurisdictions and how they affect the administration of justice. It was moreover intended to compare the French legal system with other European systems. We have chosen England and the Netherlands because they introduced the notion of efficiency and assessment long ago. This subject has been covered by authors in the past, but not in a systematic way, and especially not in a comparative way, between different EU member States, and between different court systems, levels and procedures. The work of the CEPEJ (European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice) dealing with the judicial area of the 47 Member States of the Council of Europe is important in this regard.
