As one of the main institutions of socialization of the individual, educational institution plays a special role in the formation of the legal culture of the student, purposefully forming a full member of society, able to navigate the legal environment and act with full awareness of responsibility for their decisions and actions. The assimilation of legal knowledge becomes more effective if they are studied together with the realities of life. Now, when the society is overwhelmed by a wave of crime, it is especially important to timely bring into action such means of prevention of offenses and crimes as the formation of law-abiding citizens, paying special attention to the ability to obtain legal information and use it, and this means to think, make decisions, effectively and conflict-free to solve life problems, which adapts the student to an independent and autonomous existence after school.
Intensive puberty, rapid physiological restructuring of the body, and at the same time unstable emotional sphere, bursts and uncontrollability of emotions and moods cause problems in the social contacts of the teenager. In adolescence, the student persistently strives for self-assertion, and the leading activity in this period is communication with peers, in which he learns new norms of behavior. From the point of view of legal education it should be noted that the teenager already acts as a subject of legal relations. He formed his own views on the rights and duties of people. He opposes the dictates of adults. Can argue with teachers, parents about their rights.
Psychological neoplasms of the personality of a teenager, to which the authors attribute the emergence of social consciousness and self-consciousness and self - determination also oblige teachers and parents to be more sensitive to the problems of legal education of adolescents.
