Правовое сознание и доверие
Moral principles being disregarded and legal norms being blurred as well as the absence of efficient legal mechanisms in modern Russian society are fraud by heavy losses. It is evident that Russia is still far away from turning respect for law into tradition and integral part of legal culture. The concept of legal consciousness, emphasizes the author, contains two basic ideas: first, solidness of law, and, second, trust among the people. Statistical data and the author's analysis demonstrate that one of the most important goals in the current period remains the reformation of the judicial system towards its radical democratization, real independence of courts, overcoming the confrontation between citizens and legal structures.
