The court judgment plays an important role in the mechanism of judicial protection of the
rights and legitimate interests of citizens, organizations and the state. Being the result of
judicial proceedings, it governs the further development of public relations. Not any, but
only an effective court judgment ensures the real achievement of both private and public
goals of civil litigation with minimal costs. The paper proposes the concept of an effective
judgment, defined by its properties as an act of justice, an imperious command, a law
enforcement act that acquires the force of Law, the most rational alternative among the
possible means of achieving the goals of civil procedure. Using the advanced methods of
law and economics and sociology analysis, the main aspects of judicial acts issued by court
because of civil case resolution are analyzed. Doctrinal issues of the judgment’s efficiency
in all its manifestations have become the basis for practical-oriented conclusions, which
implementation will increase the effectiveness and efficiency of civil justice system. The
author also notes that when the legal goal has been achieved by the court, legality has
been ensured, but an undesirable social effect has occurred, which was caused by law
enforcement activities, it is necessary to pay attention to the complex inefficiency of the
proceedings, and not to the negative effectiveness of the judicial act.

Keywords: efficiency; judgment; civil justice; law enforcement; legal proceedings; law
enforcement act.
