Abstract (english):

The judicial system is essential for resolving disputes peacefully, reducing conflict and maintaining social order. It is a system established by a political and legal structure which, if rational and legitimate, operates in such a manner which coheres with the basic societal structure and produces reasoned decisions by judges who apply the law to the relevant facts of the case. A rational society, which must include a rational judiciary, is one which must choose the most efficient means to achieve its ends, here assumed to be that of a representative democracy similar to that outlined by John Rawls and others. These necessary means to achieve these goals are the rule of law, meritocracy, stability and legitimacy.
