APPEAL PROCEEDINGS: HISTORY, THEORY, PRACTICE

E.A. BORISOVA,
Doctor of Legal Sciences, Professor,
Department of Civil Procedure, Law Faculty,
Lomonosov Moscow State University

History, theory, and court practice are the basis of judicial reform. If the Civil Procedure
Code of the Russian Federation was created considering this with, but subsequent changes
of the procedural law show the opposite. Changes of procedure in the appellate court are
not an exception, and that is why for the last 10 years theoretical and practical problems
of appeal proceedings have existed. The article aims to draw attention to the reasons of
occurrence of these problems; mistakes made in the course of its solution; ways of error
correction with due regard for experience of Russian civil procedure, achievements of the
civil procedure doctrine, needs of Russian judicial practice; necessity of complex approach
in reforming proceedings in the court of appeal instance.

Keywords: judicial proceedings; appeal proceedings; evidence; limit of consideration of
case; powers of appellate court; return of case; judicial reform.
