Parkhomenko Natalia. The persuasive precedent as a result of the judicial rule-making (essential and substantive issues)

The persuasive precedent is a result of the enforcement activities of the Court of Major Jurisdiction, by clarifi cation and elucidation of the true content of the rule of law in certain factual circumstances. It is resulted in a legal act, which is a decision that are of a recommendation nature for other courts but due to the credibility of the Court, the judgement could signifi cantly aff ect the formation of an established international and national judicial practice.

The invalidity, incoherence and sometimes fallacy of the judgment lead to their law eff ectiveness or ineffi ciency. This eventually underline confi dence in the judiciary and does not justify public expectations about fair trial. Under such circumstances, resort to the persuasive precedents could contribute to the settlement of relations; restoration of violated human rights and freedoms, ensuring the principle of the rule of law. The creation and infl uence of the persuasive precedents on the practices ensure its integrity. The potential of the persuasive precedents adjusts the dogma of law. It transforms the understanding of purpose of judicial rulings in regulation of social relations, their essence, content and form of expression, recognition of their role as a  means of legal regulation.

Separately, it should be noticed the correlation between the persuasive precedent and the legislative activity of responsible authorities and also their compensatory and stabilizing impact on the systems of international and national law, should be recognized. In formal legal terms, such precedents arent the source of law but they complement, what is called, the legal substance, making the system of law more persistent.

Key words: persuasive precedent, judicial rule-making, continental law, common law, ECHR, the Supreme Court, the Constitutional Tribunal.
