The most important aspects of the Governorate Institutions of the All-Russian Empire of 1775 are considered. This legal act played a significant role not only in the public administration system, but also in the areas of judicial system and legal proceedings. In fact, it laid the legal foundations for a significant part of the mechanism of the Russian state for centuries to come. For the first time, almost all parts of the judicial system were covered by one normative legal act. However, the technical and legal aspects of this regulatory legal act remain unstudied, although some works contain general assessments of its quality. An attempt has been made to reveal the legal features of this legal act, as well as to characterize its technical and legal specifics. Methods of legal research were used, including comparative legal, static and historical methods, etc. However, the main one was the dogmatic method. The conclusion is made about the high quality of the legal technique; the shortcomings are of a private nature.

Criticism of the Theory of Simple Legal Language

The problem of simplifying legal language is considered. The theory of the simplified language has many supporters who justify their positions by the fact that laws are addressed and studied not only by professional lawyers, but also by citizens; this fact should be taken into account when preparing legislative acts and, accordingly, the text of laws should be clear to everyone, who is reading it. The author points out that the legislation is addressed to the state, and not to the citizen, a group of citizens or the entire population, whose behavior it determines. An ordinary citizen, as a rule, does not read a single piece of legislation throughout his/her entire life, and a significant number of citizens do not read even a small part of legal text. The author especially notes that given the approach to the addressee of the legislation, the focus on simplifying the legal language becomes meaningless and even harmful for the entire legal system. It is impossible to create legislation using terms and terminological phrases that are understandable to all citizens, since they are not addressed to them. The use of simplified legal language in lawmaking distorts the essence of regulations. The author consistently examines the common provisions of the theory of simplified legal language and reasonably subjects them to critical analysis. The paper concludes that thoughtless submission to the simplified language rules and a focus on the accessibility of laws for any reader leads to neglect of the essence of regulations and other legal documents for the sake of their form.

The Identity of a Criminal in the Value-Meaningful Interpretation of Criminological Science
A. Kiryukhin

🗏 : 454-463
DOI: https://doi.org/10.17277/pravo.2023.04.pp.454-463

The article raises the problem of the theoretical validity of the concept of criminal personality in the criminological science and the practical expediency of using this concept. It is assumed that the individual qualities, psychological characteristics, emotional, volitional and intellectual properties of criminals in their content and expression have no significant differences from those that each person has. A particular conclusion is made that the public danger of a criminal is determined solely by the severity of the crime committed by him/her. A critical analysis of the main provisions of the doctrine of the personality of the criminal is carried out, in which the concept of personality is devalued, and the criminal is reduced to a constructivizing abstraction, social and psychological model. The author points out the ideological reasons for the complete rejection of dialectical cognition of an individual as a subject of social relations and actions, reflecting the totality of social roles that he/she plays in society. It is proposed to return to the research into criminologically significant signs and properties of a criminal, instead of searching for significant differences between the criminal and other people, and the personification of criminal’s social vices.

Using the research conducted by the authors, the article analyzes the influence of the phenomenon of criminal tattoos of suspects (accused) on the preparation and conduct of such an investigative action as interrogation. The authors come to the conclusion that those conducting the interrogation must choose tactics for conducting it, taking into account, among other things, the presence of tattoos on the suspects (accused). But in this case it is necessary to be guided not only by the information about its owner encrypted in a particular tattoo, but also by other data known to the investigation (inquiry). This means that various measures must be taken to verify the authenticity of the data contained in the tattoo. In such cases, the interrogation will be even more effective and of high quality.

The purpose of preferential legal regimes is to establish legal equality and social justice by creating favorable conditions for the exercise of rights and performance of duties. For this reason, there may be an apparent discrepancy in the application of these regimes in criminal law. The article proves that this is not the case. In this way it is possible to achieve equality between persons who have committed a crime. Criminals, in isolation from the act they have committed, may, due to objective circumstances, be vulnerable from a social point of view compared to other subjects who have committed similar acts. In addition, the law requires that the punishment corresponds not only to the nature and degree of public danger of the crime, but also to the circumstances of its commission, as well as the identity of a person. The article also notes that punishment is applied in order to restore social justice, as well as to correct the convicted person and prevent the commission of new crimes, but not for the purpose of torture. The signs of preferential legal regimes that are characteristic of criminal law: they do not seek to minimize the penitentiary and preventive effect of punishment, but only contribute to the establishment of legal equality and social justice; they contribute to the proportionality of punishment; being a legal exception, they increase the normativity of law. The article presents groups of preferential legal regimes in criminal law based on their functional orientation. It is concluded that preferential legal regimes in the field of criminal law regulation are established and function to achieve the main goal: to create conditions for the implementation of the principles of legal equality and social justice.
