Student: Marina Gerasimenko

Supervisor: Alexander Sergeev

Faculty: School of Law

Educational Programme: Civil Law and Commercial Law (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2018

The reform of Russian law on obligations and contract law resulted in major amendments made to general provisions on the compensation of damages, including those borrowed from foreign legal systems. The trend of the inclusion of foreign institutions into the Russian civil law makes it necessary to study the nature and history of the emergence of these institutions to identify their specifics and to analyze the successful use of them in practice. A comparative research of damages in English, German and Russian civil law is conducted in this work. Among other things, the author deals with definition and types of damages, basic principles of recovering damages, standards of proof both of the amount of damages and their causation. As the result of this research the author reveals the problems of regulating this institution in Russian law.
