Bibl.: 27 ref.

Abstract: Actuality of the chosen issues is caused by the events that took place over the years of construction of Ukrainian sovereign and democratic state, caused by realization of peculiarities of political processes, necessity for implementation of state reforms and results of these reforms.

The author considered legal and philosophical aspects of the concept of «legal consciousness». After analyzing a large spectrum of definitions of the legal consciousness our own understanding of this term was determined. Legal consciousness is a system of ideas, perceptions, emotions and feelings that expressing the attitude to the law of an individual in particular and society in general, as well as activities related to the law.

We indicated different approaches of determining legal consciousness and metamorphosis of their species. They are: legal nihilism; degeneration of legal consciousness; legal idealism; legal infantilism.

On the basis of research we defined the necessity to consider the following principles for establishment of democratic state as the rule of law, humanism, priority of human and civil rights, justice, separation of power, legitimacy of law etc.

We determined that at the current stage of construction of democratic and legal state system changes of legal consciousness are necessary, which in Ukraine covers such areas as reforming social and economic life; the changing nature of legal regulation of the law as close to the interests of the citizens of the state; increasing the authority of the government; unconditional subordination of the law by the public authorities; a complete upgrade of the judiciary; the spread of legal education at all levels; governmental activities focused on strengthening humanistic state legal ideology, dominated by the values of democracy and legal state.

Keywords: legal consciousness; legal consciousness of society; metamorphosis of the legal consciousness of Ukrainian society; governmental formation process; legal and democratic state
