MESSAGE FROM THE HON. NIKOLAY FEDOROV MINISTER OF JUSTICE OF 
THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION

 

A new era has begun in Russian history. Russia is ascending to a law based, federative, democratic, market state. Economic and political structures are changing dramatically. The transitional period from communist doctrines and totalitarism to diametrically different political and legal, social and economic realities is very complicating and contradicting. Effectiveness and fruitfulness of such global social changes are impossible without a total and radical transformation of the legal area. This tendency today may be seen in the profound legal reform which embraces all aspects of life in our society.

The main direction of legal reform in Russian Federation may be defined as follows: in philosophy and sociology - doctrines of natural and inalienable human rights; in economics and politics - restriction of expansion of state by law; in law and state - separation of powers, constitutionalism, superiority of law. Summing up, one may say that the law is becoming a part of culture.

It is obvious that the process of establishing new legislation in Russia is complicated by the fact that the world practice does not know precedents of such a large scale replacement of one legal system by the diametrically different one. In addition, this has to be done very fast without halting political, economic, legal, social and other aspects of life in the society. Absence of world experience in this respect excludes availability of the precise recipes aimed to lead to the final goal.

Our goal at ARLI is to give an opportunity to foreign lawyers, businessmen, scholars and politicians to receive direct access to Russian legislation and enable them to apprehend modern legal realities in the Russian Federation. Progress of international relations of Russia with the world community directly depends upon acquaintance of our foreign partners with Russian legislation in effect. ARLI provides the missing link and serves like a compass to enable you to choose the right direction leading through the legislation to mutual understanding, cooperation and entrepreneurial success in Russia.
