image of Review of Socialist Law

On 4 August 1989, Soviet judges and people's assessors were honoured with the first USSR law defining their status, set to come into force on 1 December 1989.1 For the Soviet legal system in general, this law was one more building block in the effort to build a "rule of law socialist state"; for Soviet judges, it marked an attempt to improve their status and image from its existing low level. The degree of success that the law will have in improving the judges' lot remains to be seen. There is a large shortfall to make up. However, it is encouraging that the attempt is being made, through legal means, to strengthen the position of the individuals working at the heart of the legal system.
