Courts and Transition in Russia: The Challenge of Judicial Reform

By Peter H. Solomon Jr.; Todd S. Foglesong | Go to book overview
4.3 Develop and approve legislation to fill existing gaps in the jurisdiction of the courts to void certain kinds of normative acts and bureaucratic regulations and ensure that some court is empowered to deal with any and all legal norms that violate the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
4.4 Improve and regularize financial support for the institutions of the judicial community -- the Congress of Judges, the Council of Judges, the Supreme Judicial Qualification Commission, and similar bodies in the subjects of the Federation.
4.5 Establish and support, probably within the new Academy of Justice, a research center on the judiciary and the administration of justice.
