Washington Law Review


Ivar Spector


Soviet Civil Law, included in the Michigan Legal Studies, is the product of many years of painstaking research. In 1940 the University of Michigan Law School took over from the U.S. Department of Commerce an English translation of the Judiciary Law of the U.S.S.R. and of the Civil Code and the Code of Civil Procedure of the R.S.F.S.R. prepared by Morton E. Kent, and assigned the work of revision to Dr. Vladinur Gsovski, Chief of the Foreign Law Section of the Library of Congress. Dr. Gsovski has not only revised and increased the basic documentary materials on Soviet civil law, but has prepared the exhaustive treatise on the subject which comprises Volume I—the volume covered in this review.
