The efficiency in court’s proceedings has procedural, moral (social) and economic dimensions.  Several competing “right” solutions can fight in a court game within a framework set up by rules of procedure. It is impermissible to go beyond its rules, they are enacted in texts of law (procedural aspect of efficiency). The moral aspect comes down to sharing the benefits of legal justice as specific rights and obligations. Very important is the economic aspect of the case connected to an individual and the social benefits and losses. It can be successfully analyzed by means of the decision-theoric methodology of Law and Economics School. Their approach must be complemented by a social explanatory theory of legal method of solving conflicts.
