Transition from Quantity to Quality in Civil Procedural Law

V.M. Sherstyuk, 
Doctor of Legal Sciences, Professor of the Department 
of Civil Procedure of the Faculty of Law of the Lomonosov Moscow State University 

The article examines various forms of transition of procedural rules and structural units of civil procedural law in new legal communities. The science of civil procedural law cannot fail to wonder how this development occurs, are there any qualitative changes in the field of law, its divisions, are there new qualitative formations, what is the mechanism of emergence of new qualities. In relation to civil procedural law the category «quantity» can be considered as a set of certain homogeneous structural units of the branch of law that can be divided in kind on homogeneous elements and assembled together. If necessary, they can be counted. Each structural separation of civil procedural law has its uniform quantitative composition: institutions – a certain number of uniform legal norms, associations of institutions – a certain set of homogeneous institutions, sub-branches – a certain number of uniform associations, institutes, branches – several homogeneous sub-branches. 

Keywords: quality; quantity; measure; jump; branch of law; institution; procedural rule.
