Abstract

The paper briefly describes main features of joint (mutual) wills,  explores their history, origin and development in Russian law at all stages of its formation, starting from the era of Ancient Rus’, as well as the process of their introduction in modern Russian legislation. The subject of the study is normative legal acts regulating property relations in the period under review, official documents, and court decisions. There are used formal dogmatic approach, comparative and historical methods.  The research concluded that the construction of joint (mutual) wills existed in pre-revolutionary law in Russia, but the legislator intentionally refused to include them in the legislation of a later period. Nowadays it is necessary to consider precisely all possible theoretical and practical problems that may arise as a result of the application of joint (mutual) wills and, if necessary, continue to reform Russian inheritance law. In conclusion, the understanding of historical patterns is a prerequisite for improving civil legislation at the present stage.
