Procedural Law

 

those norms of a legal system that regulate relations that develop during the investigation of crimes and the hearing and resolution of criminal and civil cases.

There are two basic forms of legal proceedings: civil and criminal. Soviet procedural legislation establishes truly democratic methods of conducting fair trials on the basis of the principle of socialist legality.
