D.I. MEYER, AND MODERN JUSTICE
(TO THE 200TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BIRTH)
Doctor of Legal Science, Professor, Department of Civil and Administrative Proceedings,
Russian State University of Justice
In this article, the author considers the problems of continuity in the development of
individual institutions of civil procedural law from the second half of the 19th century to the
present. The scientific exactingness and subtlety of thinking inherent in the writings of the
founder of Russian civil law, Dmitry Ivanovich Meyer, allow a deeper and more accurate
understanding of the current contemporary problems of civil proceedings. The author
notes that under the current conditions, many obvious and generally accepted views on
the proper administration of justice, from the point of view of Dmitry Meyer, could hardly
be fully justified. This assumption is examined in detail in this study using an example of
the implementation of the principle of impartiality in the exercise of justice. In addition,
a separate emphasis is placed on the fact that the simplification of civil legal proceedings
cannot occur due to the rejection of procedural guarantees in the administration of justice.
The author of this article finds a valid idea that it is advisable to reorient the vector of
finding means to optimize legal proceedings in favor of integrating the capabilities of
artificial intelligence in the administration of justice in the legal field.
Keywords: law; justice; civil proceedings; impartiality of justice; procedural reform.
