Problematical Aspects of Current Legal Regulation of Appellate Review and their Solution in Suggested Amendment of Czech Civil Procedure Code


Th e aim of this article is to point to insufficiencies of the current legal regulation of the appellate review proceeding in civil cases, when the court competent to deal with the appellate reviews is not able to fulfill its function of a unifier of case law and the defender of lawfullness of decision-making any more. Th e proposed amendment of the Civil procedure code which is being prepared by the Ministry of Justice reacts to many of these insufficiencies. In the article we have only focused on crucial conceptual problems of the proposed legal regulation and we have avoided other deficiencies requiring deeper analysis and the knowledge of Czech legal regulation.
