We debate the contribution of the economic analysis of legal procedures, with a special regard for the debate between inquisitorial and accusatory systems and the judge’s role in the course of the procedure. The article proposes a presentation of the literature and develops specific models concerning penal as well as civil procedures. In the two cases, the demonstration is brought that the judge’s role is susceptible to be determinant in the research of the efficiency of the judicial system. The paper takes the opposite of numerous previous analyses that generally concludes to the superiority –in terms of economic efficiency– of the common law system characterized by a more “passive” role of the judge.
