This study presents a comparative legal analysis of the institution of a mandatory share in inheritance in the law of Russia and some foreign countries according to three comparison criteria: the concept and legal definition; the size of the mandatory share and mandatory heirs; features of calculating the size of the mandatory share.
The relevance of the chosen topic is due to the fact that the similarities and differences established as a result of comparative legal analysis of the norms of inheritance law of Russia and foreign states of the legal regulation of the institution of mandatory share in inheritance allow us to re-evaluate the current regulation of mandatory share in inheritance in Russian law and use the experience of foreign countries for further improvement of Russian legislation on inheritance.
As a result of the conducted research, significant differences were established in the regulatory and legal regulation of the institution of a mandatory share in the inheritance, which can be used as part of the reform of the inheritance law of Russia.
