Keywords: inheritance law, a will, inheritance, inheritance fund, forced heirship, inheritance contract, joint will of spouses

Socio-economic changes in Russia predetermined the need to reform domestic inheritance law. However, any change in the rules of succession requires an extremely balanced and phased approach at least because inheritance affects absolutely everyone. This article studies the most important and interesting novelties of inheritance law in terms of effectiveness and expediency of their implementation in the Civil Code of the Russian Federation. Based on the analysis of the norms of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation governing inheritance relations, some legislative gaps were revealed. The aim of the study is to analyze the most pressing issues related to reforming civil legislation currently in force in the field of inheritance. The conclusions and recommendations made in the article can contribute to further studying the problems of inheritance relationship and applying the research results to improve the norms of the third part of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation.
