The constitutional courts judges in Russia: what are they? (demographic, social, professional background)

The trust to justice is based, inter alia, on the reputation of judges, their professional level, ethical behavior. The activities of the courts in many respects depend on the initial worldview, philosophical, professional positions and attitudes of judges. There are over fifteen constitutional review branches in Russia, including Constitutional Court of Russia Federation, constitutional (ustavny) courts in regions of Russia. All judges have to comply a high qualification level but each of them has personal experience in professional career, different generational and gender experience, etc. To construct in outline the profile of the judge who makes decision in the Russian constitutional courts we do the comparative analysis of judges’ CV (from open sources), acts about the judges’ legal status (in part of necessary qualifications, abilities for tenure).
