The article is devoted to prospects of the development of civil proceedings in the Russian Federation. Historical experience shows that the development of the judicial system and judicial legislation goes wavelike – periods of unification and integration are followed by periods of specialization and differentiation. In our opinion, this kind of movement is not bad, because in both cases we are talking about development, caused by the evolution of public relations in a concrete historical situation. Association of two supreme Russian courts shows that currently the Russian judicial system has entered a period of unification and integration. It is important that the relevant legal act adopted and its provisions are being implemented in practice. Even more important that the development of the court system and judicial legislation passed in the appropriate way. We believe that the association of supreme courts should lead to the unification of the lower courts, their organizational and functional device should be a device similar to the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation. Accordingly, in the judicial system should not be a holistic system of arbitration courts, independent of any specific arbitration courts. Naturally abolishment of courts on economic disputes is out of the question. Because respective social relations have not disappeared, the need of courts considering economic disputes, too, do not cause doubt.
Keywords: Supreme Court of the Russian Federation; judicial reform; association of superior courts; the Unified Civil Procedure Code.
