Chapter Summary

Present-day social relationships are regulated according to various branches of law. The importance of regulating law according to branches is illustrated by the example of analogy, one of the basic instruments for filling gaps in legal regulation. The unconditional rejection of a distinction between public and private law resulted in the necessity of using not only the object, but also the method of regulation as a means to individualize civil law and other branches of law. The combination of these two independent criteria served as the starting-point for separating, on the one hand, civil law, land law, and family law, and, on the other, constitutional, administrative, financial, criminal and procedural law. The 1994 Russian Civil Code was drafted and adopted in a period in which ideological limitations were definitively laid aside, including those concerning the division of law into public and private spheres.
