The article covers the issues, conceptual category of "source of law" in general and discusses the formation of the source base of disciplinary - tort law, in particular. The author examines the approaches of scientists to the category of "source of law", and also proposes his own approach to the definition of this concept. In addition, this scholarly work emphasizes that disciplinary and tort law, as an institution of business law, is poorly researched, which impedes its systematization and its expedient application in practice. Certainly this condition is facilitated by the lack of a clear definition of the range of legal acts that are intended to regulate a given branch of law. That is why, understanding the severity of the problem, within this article, the author concentrates his attention precisely on the issues of sources of disciplinary and tort law, and gives his own classification of the latter. For this purpose, the source base is classified into three main systems, namely normative, casuistic and informal, within which subcategories are distinguished. In order to fully disclose the selected issues, the author analyzes both domestic and foreign regulatory acts, in particular, analyzes the acts of the relevant legislation. Particular attention is drawn to the legal acts of the European Community, because given the European guidelines of Ukraine for the author's belief it is appropriate. In addition, the practical aspects of this topic are covered within the scope of scientific work, in particular the provisions of the case law are considered.
