The review presents the book by E.A. Ivanova “Agreements in the Field of Civil Jurisdiction:
Procedural and Legal Aspect”. According to the reviewer, in modern conditions there is
a tendency towards strengthening of private law principles and the development of dispositiveness
in the context of civil procedural law, which is associated, in particular, with the
implementation of the ideas of economic freedom and market economy within the framework
of civil circulation and the transformation of legal institutions of substantive branches of law.
Proceeding from this, there is a need for new doctrinal, lawmaking and law enforcement
approaches on the issue of empowering legal participants in the independent choice of forms
and methods of protecting violated rights, as well as in order to influence the dynamics of
procedural legal relations. This is possible through the use in legislation of the full potential
of procedural agreements, the theoretical development of which was carried out in the book
under review, meaningfully revealing the key aspects of the indicated problem.
Keywords: procedural agreements; alternative methods of dispute resolution; civil procedure;
forms of legal dispute resolution; mediation.
