Abstract: The object of this research is the paragraph 'History of the Origin and Development of Russia's Judicial System', chapter 'Russia's Judicial System', monograph 'Judicial Service Development Patterns' (published in Moscow in 2016).

The author of this article comments that the research lacks analysis of substantial researches on the matter and focuses on the weak points in the research as well as wrong facts which plays a crucial role for the development of the theory of the dialectical development of Russia's judicial system. The analysis performed by the author is based on the principle of historicism (historical-genetic method) that allows to relate each stage of the development to the previous or following stages. The scientific novelty of the monograph is caused by the fact that Alekseevksaya analyzes the genesis of the theory and history of functional judicial system and organisation of judicial activity that would promote the substantiation of the theory of the dialectical development of Russia's judicial system and search for its patterns. Based on his analysis of the aforesaid paragraph, the reviewer highlights the drawbacks of the research to be noted by the author of the monograph.
