Development of Russian Judicial System Institute: Assessment of (Non)Randomness of Cases Distribution between Judges.
The work is devoted to the cases distribution independence study as an indicator of the overall effectiveness of the judicial system. The basic assumption is that the cases distribution between judges is not random. In some cases this is justified (economic cases must be considered by those who know the economy), in others this may be a discrimination demonstration (women are not trusted with complex / politically resonant affairs). The analysis is carried out by building binary choice econometric models. The study confirmed that the cases distribution depends on such judge's characteristics as gender, additional economic education and certain qualification class.
