Issue: 7:3 (The twenty seventh issue)
The aim of this paper is to outline the general oversight of the concept of law in
Leon Petrażycki’s legal theory. On the example of the principles of law, an

current state of theoretical knowledge in the field of principles of law. The
attention was paid to the problem of various characteristics of legal principles.
In further considerations, an attempt was made to answer the question about
adoption of models proposed by Petrażycki in the contemporary theoretical
discourse. The summary presents general conclusions of the paper.
