The author analyses the role and significance of the humanistic theory and practice of the present. The aim of the article is to demonstrate that the theory and practice of the contemporary humanism assert the necessity of not only mastering legal aspects by an individual, but also the ability to organize our life in accordance with the humanistic principles. Legal consciousness of youth should be based on the understanding of multipolarity of the contemporary life, where a habitual worldview can be changed during insignificant period of time. How to avoid violence and oppression of a human personality in the society, where a multitude of opinions and assessments exists, which are often of anti-humanistic nature. Perception of the system of law, its separate elements by young people is embodied in legal awareness - this is knowledge of measures from the point of view of rights and duties, legality and illegality for oneself and society. The contemporary politic situation testifies the immaturity of the legal consciousness of the part of youth and their conscious opposition to humanism values. Pluralism of cultures, leaving its imprint on the existence of the right, is objectively ceasing to be considered as an argument in favour of the opportunity of implementation of legal interrelationships on the basis of humanistic values. This kind of tension initiates the necessity of philosophical study of the problem of the right and legal consciousness of youths in the context of the changeable world.
