The aim of this study is to analyse theoretical and practical problems of formation of legal consciousness and forms of its deformation.
Low level of legal consciousness indicates that an individuum is not legally mature. Having such a level of legal consciousness, this person is unable to withstand a legal load and produce an active pattern of behaviour upon involvement in the social and legal activity.
In conclusion, the author infers that legal consciousness reflects the public legal ideals, main legal norms and principles, acquisition of legal knowledge, skills, and practical abilities, forms lawful conduct, sense of legal responsibility for compliance with law and order.
