Non-Prince Judicial Law of the XI–XIII Centuries of Veche (Popular Assembly) Novgorod Republic: Mediation of Ancient Rus
S. M. Markov
In Veliky Novgorod besides prince law there were alternative (non-prince) judicial institutes: veche, ecclesiastical, arbitral, merchant, and debater negotiations courts. Their unique status isn't given proper consideration in modern historiography because of dominance of Marxist state theory in history and law science. Instead the Kiev model of law and courts is preferred. Alternative law of Veliky Novgorod is based on socio-political theory of the state and cultural pluralism.
