Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with issues with regard to the legal culture and upbringing as a precondition for the legal regulation effectiveness in modern democratic states. These issues are interpreted as part of the culture of the society which englobes knowledge, beliefs, customs, laws and various other abilities, which human beings get to, know in the process of their socialization. The philosophic and sociological understanding of culture is being considered as a system of complex and multi-layer structure, formed historically. Legal culture as part of the general culture of the society is related to the use of legal values, which may motivate people towards a positive social behavior without external intervention or compulsion.
