The Possibilities of Judicial Revision

The Possibilities of Judicial Revision

(p.337) 9 The Possibilities of Judicial Revision
Marriage, Property, and Law in Late Imperial Russia

William G. Wagner

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at how the high court redefined property and inheritance law based on social and economic needs, with a wider range of revision compared with those for the family law. The high court geared toward limiting patrimonial property by giving owners more options on disposing patrimonial property, rather than by a complete abolition within the kin-group. A move to define the attributes of testamentary power is also described.

Keywords:   patrimonial property, Civil Code Commission, Civil Cassation Department, property and inheritance law, testamentary power
