CONCEPT OF THE MAGAZINE "LegaL Science"

The journal is a scientific and practical publication, covering both the fundamental issues of legal science, and applied aspects of legal regulation and professionalization of a lawyer.
As in the fundamental edition, it occupies a special place in philosophical and legal and theoretical legal concepts based on methodological pluralism (phenomenology and hermeneutics of law, legal positivism, sociological and psychological schools of law, synthetic legal theories, etc.).
The journal has an international legal accentuation. Coverage is given to issues of globalization in the legal sphere, the development of international intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, and various forms of international cooperation. The theory of integration law and the practice of the functioning of integration associations (first of all, the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union) occupy a special place in the concept of the journal.
Legal comparative studies occupy one of the most important places in the publication. They receive coverage of the work, in which foreign legislation and the practice of its application are analyzed, recommendations are made on borrowing and adapting foreign experience to the peculiarities of the domestic legal system and legal practice.
The magazine is interdisciplinary, that is, it covers both the problems of the traditional branches of Russian law and the current problems of the formation of new branches of law and branches of the law.
The journal provides a platform for young scientists, reviews of short stories of domestic legislation, tendencies of international regulation, Russian and foreign monographs and dissertations are made. A separate rubric is devoted to law enforcement practice.
Thus, the main methodological principles of this publication are:
- interdisciplinary and intercompetent approach;
- priority of complex, at the junction of scientific specialties and educational competencies, research;
- end-to-end analysis of competition and interaction of law and order (international, national and supranational);
- study of international organizations, as well as little formalized international regulators, the impact of their regulatory practices and standards on national and other legal systems.
The editors are counting on cooperation with scientific and educational institutions, the expert community, the media, and all those interested in the development of legal science, legislation, and law enforcement.
