Judicial mechanisms for overcoming difficulties in resolving a dispute in the absence of a rule of law or inconsistency in its application





legal mechanisms, analogy of the law, analogy of law, doctrine, interpretation, legal tools, norms of law


The article considers the issues of the possibility of using such legal instruments as judicial mechanisms for overcoming difficulties in resolving disputes in the absence of an appropriate rule of law or inconsistency of its application. An attempt has been made to trace the tendency of courts to turn to analogy of law and analogy of law, as well as to broader interpretation and application of doctrines. It is concluded that the use of a variety of legal instruments provided by the Civil Code of Ukraine and judicial practice makes it possible to properly exercise and protect subjective civil rights. In the absence of full-fledged normative regulation, when considering cases, one should use such approaches as analogy of law and analogy of law, doctrine, interpretation. It is indicated that the proper interpretation of the norms of law is one of the conditions for their application in accordance with the needs of society, while giving rise to both the appropriate for the settlement of the problem, and legal means of their resolution. However, there is often a need for an analogy of law or analogy of law if the rules of law do not meet the conditions of formal certainty. It is shown that using a wide range of methods for solving problems arising from inappropriate or insufficient legal regulation, it is possible to achieve a useful legal effect. At the same time, it was noted that one should not overload the laws with unnecessary legal mechanisms, the judicial practice copes with this quite effectively
