The article is devoted to the legal institution and the definition of “competence” and the
related institution and the definition of “jurisdiction”. Using historical, comparative, system-
structural and other methods of cognition, the author analyzes the doctrinal content
and consolidation in legislation of these institutions in their development. The relevance
of the research topic is justified by the fact that in the Civil Procedure Code of the Russian
Federation and in the Commercial Procedure Code of the Russian Federation, the
term “competence” is now not used. The author substantiates the point of view that this
does not mean the loss of the meaning of the definition for science, legal education and
judicial practice. Taking into account the provisions of the new legislation, an algorithm
for determining the competence and jurisdiction of a legal case is proposed. As one of the
conclusions, the author points out that there are no grounds for refusing to use the concept
of “jurisdiction” either in practice, or in the science of civil and arbitration proceedings,
or in the process of teaching these disciplines. In addition, the researcher notes that
the analysis of judicial practice since the beginning of 2020 shows that the courts continue
to actively use the term “jurisdiction”, both referring to the decisions of the plenums of
the RF Supreme Court and the RF Supreme Arbitration Court, and directly.

Keywords: civil procedure; commercial judicial proceedings; administrative judicial proceedings;
сcompetence; jurisdiction; legal case.
