Проблемы развития системы права в современной России
theoretical problems of the legal system are considered. Known criteria for identifying branches of law are proposed to be added both with new criteria and with criteria such as “the presence of a system-forming codified regulatory legal act”. The problem of instability of the legal system is raised. It is noted that the theorists of law should not only make the appropriate adjustments to the current model of the legal system, but also identify trends in its development.
