Russian President Dmitry Medvedev proposed on Monday developing a system to reduce the amount of work faced by judges.

"We are perfectly aware that the current workload is enormous," Medvedev said at a meeting on improving the operation of arbitration courts in the country.

"Unfortunately, it leads to... the poor consideration of cases. The bigger the load, naturally, the lower the quality of the consideration of disputes is," he said.

The chairman of Russia's Higher Court of Arbitration, Anton Ivanov, said a judge considers some 60 cases a month on average, adding that the figure reaches 100 in big cities.

The meeting was also attended by the chairmen of the Constitutional, Supreme and Higher arbitration courts, Prosecutor General Yury Chaika, presidential administration head Sergei Naryshkin and other officials.
