INTERPRETATION AND APPLICATION OF CATEGORY "REASONABLE TIME" IN CIVIL PROCEEDINGS

Keywords: civil process, law enforcement, reasonable term, judicial acts, the European Court of Human Rights

Abstract

The article examines the process of implementing a new institution of reasonable time for Russian civil procedural law, due to the ratification in 1998 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. Complexities with definition, interpretation, criteria of application of this category are described. The correlation of this category with other legal concepts and constructions is analyzed. The problems of application and interpretation by Russian courts of reasonable terms in the consideration and resolution of specific civil cases are singled out. Special attention is paid to the issue of the ratio of understanding and interpretation of the category "reasonable term" in the acts of the European Court of Human Rights and acts of Russian courts. A conclusion is drawn on the need for a unified approach by the European Court of Human Rights and the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation in determining the category "reasonable term". Recommendations are proposed to improve the current procedural legislation and law enforcement practice.
