The paper analyzes modern mechanisms and ways of adapting the principles and norms of Islamic law to the regulation of financial relations. Taking into account the significance of fiqh as a legal doctrine that interprets religious prescriptions to the peculiarities of law enforcement practice, the key features of the institutions of Islamic law in the context of the development of the Islamic model of economy are identified. The object of comparative legal analysis in the paper is the jurisdiction of international financial centers as territories with a special legal regime for conducting business, the legal status of which is fixed in special legal acts, which contributes to the formation of flexible instruments of legal regulation in view of the correlation with the norms of the national legal order. International financial centers are presented as an example of the formation of global legal institutions in Western countries, as well as in countries of South-East Asia and the Middle East. The author argues that Islamic finance as a way to adapt the principles of Islamic law to the regulation of business activities is a mandatory element of the legal environment of international financial centers.
Nowadays the growth of courts’ caseload is usual for most jurisdictions. However, post-socialist countries have extremely high rates of caseload. Authors prove that main reason of such caseload is more ineffectiveness of legal system and court organization as well as unjustified access to justice. This article focuses on the indisputable and small cases in Russian courts. The court system is overloaded as a result of necessity to engage in non-targeted activities. Thus, the judicial system is largely idle to the detriment of its primary purpose.
The article aims to provide a semiotic interpretation of the sign of the Ecclesiastical Court within the legal framework from temporal and spatial perspectives (case of Russia). The starting point of the research is the idea that the history of the Russian Ecclesiastical Court is inextricably linked to the history of Russian society and secular court. Consideration of the pre-revolutionary ecclesiastical and secular law helps us explore principles of the ecclesiastical proceedings and organization, identify contradictions in understanding modern Ecclesiastical Court. Its sign is not only limited to the legal interpretation. In his novel The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoevsky F. M. gave the sign of the Ecclesiastical Court symbolic meaning and, thus, expanded it beyond the existing legal framework. The Ecclesiastical Court is one of the symbols of Russian spirituality which is reflected in the concept of “Russian soul”. Rational elements of the sign of Ecclesiastical Court as well as its sensual and metaphorical (represented visually in the author’s pictures in this article) components, are analyzed using the category of Truth. Clearly, the Cross is sign-symbol for Christianity. But if applied to the concept of Ecclesiastical Court, the Orthodox Cross becomes a sign-index. As a result, several semantically heterogeneous meanings of the sign of Ecclesiastical Court are revealed and described. The article is published in a special issue: Cultural Heritage, Law & Discourse: A Triadic Dimension in Protection, Regulation & Identity.
