L'économie de la preuve judiciaire

Author

  • Claude Denys Fluet

Abstract

Cet article développe un modèle simple permettant d’analyser les dispositifs fondamentaux de la preuve judiciaire. Le survol est centré sur les notions de charge de la preuve, de présomptions légales, de norme de preuve, sur le rôle de la procédure et le pouvoir d’initiative du juge. Les règles de preuve sont analysées du point de vue des coûts de litige, du risque d’erreur judiciaire et des incitations à l’adoption de comportements socialement efficients.
