In this article, the author attempts to comprehensively consider such a concept as “flash justice”.
The study of this concept, new for Russian science, takes place through the prism of law
enforcement practice and the use of many illustrative examples of judicial acts, interviews
with representatives of the judicial system and other sources of information. The mentioned
phenomenon is considered and evaluated from the point of view of not only civil and arbitration,
but also criminal proceedings, where examples are more colorful and clear. The author
also cites foreign, in particular English, legal experience as an example. Thus, it is noted that
a draft judicial act can be prepared by both the court staff, and its individual provisions can
be prepared by the parties. At the same time, the existing guarantees related to the prevention
of misleading the judge, as the author notes, contribute to the formulation of the draft court
decision, which reflects only the objective facts established by the court and meets the criteria
of truth and legality. Also, the article indirectly touches on certain retrospective aspects related
to the development of the institution of judicial decision, as well as its transformations in
the light of the changing external conditions of the administration of justice.

Keywords: civil procedure; arbitration procedure; justice; court decision; reasoning for the
decision; criminal proceedings.
