Imperial jurists on Senate's law-making

Jun 23, 2015

Four important works on the judge-made law of the Ruling Senate are added to the "Academic Wirks" section of our web site. They were penned by eminent Russian legal scholars of the early XX century:

Е.V. Vas'kovskii.  The Law-Making Activities of New Courts in the Field of Civil Law and Procedure // Judicial Statutes of 20 November 1864 for the fifty years. Volume II. Petrograd, 1914. P. 375-413

S.К. Gogel.  Law-Making Activities of the Senate in the Field of Criminal Law // A History of the Ruling Senate For the Fifty Years. Volume IV. Sankt-Petersburg, 1911. P. 396-450

А.E. Nol'de.  Law-Making Activities of the Ruling Senate in the Field of Civil Law // A History of the Ruling Senate For the Fifty Years. Volume IV. Sankt-Petersburg, 1911. P. 421-440

С.В. Познышев.  Law-Making Activities of New Courts in the Field of Criminal Law and Procedure // Судебные Judicial Statutes of 20 November 1864 for the fifty years. Volume II. Petrograd, 1914. P. 414-478.

Taken together, the above-mentioned pieces provide a sufficiently comprehensive view on the contribution made by the Cassation Departments of the Ruling Senate into Russion law during the half-century of its existence.
