The article examines theoretical and applied aspects of development of administrative justice in modern Russia and in the world in the context of formation of the transnational right. The article considers general-theoretical, philosophical, and legal issues of further formation and development of the constitutional state in modern Russia. It is viewed that the formation would observe the balance of the interests of society, an individual, executive authorities, and local government. The authors support the thesis about the balance of interests of executive power and an individual on the basis of the courts activity specializing on administrative legal proceedings. The authors scrutinize the national systems of administrative justice of some countries of continental Europe (France, Germany, and Italy), USA, People’s Republic of China, and Russia. The authors accentuate the Russian judicial reform of 2014 and improvements of the system of domestic legislature in the Russian Federation. A logical consequence of it was adoption of the Code of administrative legal proceedings of the Russian Federation in March, 2015. The authors put forward the thesis about the features of continental (Roman and German) and Anglo-Saxon legal systems of administrative justice. The authors analyze the problem and make conclusion about the ways and specifics of further formation of the system of administrative justice in modern Russia.
