Suniehin Serhii. Effectiveness of legal regulation: a socionormative approach to understanding

Introduction. The article is devoted to the study of the conceptual foundations of the effectiveness of legal regulation in the context of the socionormative approach. One of the most difficult issues in the development of modern Ukrainian society is the problem of ensuring the effectiveness of legal regulation of social relations, or, in other words, guaranteeing the state of proper orderliness of the entire system of social relations, their stable progressive development and, as a result, strengthening the regime of constitutional legality and law and order in society.

The aim of the article. The purpose of this article is to determine the social factors of the effectiveness of legal regulation in the context of the socionormative approach.

Results. In our opinion, the effectiveness of legal regulation can be determined both by determining the formal effectiveness of the functioning of the legal system and by establishing the appropriate parameters of its social orientation, which are expressed, in particular, in the fair and humanistic quality of the development of social relations. At the same time, the formal and essential characteristics of the effectiveness of legal regulation are interconnected, interdependent values, although it is the latter that testify to the real trends (positive or negative) of social development. After all according to the formal characteristics of the effectiveness of legal regulation, it is possible to determine, first of all, the quality of the implementation of the requirements of positive law, stable forms of legal behavior or legal practice, which are stable in individual and social legal consciousness models of legal behavior that can be carriedout outside the context of teleological and substantive understanding of the legal nature of the relevant actions, including in the light of their correlation with the content of the norms of other social regulators.

The effectiveness of legal regulation can be considered at the general, special (branch) and special (unit) levels, which are interconnected. The general level of effectiveness of legal regulation implies the need to establish general trends in the development of the legal system, the content of which attests to the progressive or, accordingly, regressive nature of its functioning. The special or sectoral level of effectiveness of legal regulation is based on the consequences of the practical implementation of norms and institutions of the relevant branches of law (constitutional, administrative, civil, criminal, family, labor, etc.). Unit level of effectiveness of legal regulation can be established by considering the relevant consequences of the impact of a certain legislative act on specific social relations.

Conclusions. The crisis of the modern world order proves the need to pay attention to the socionormative approach to determining the effectiveness of legal regulation, the main indicators of which are the appropriate level of coherence of socionormative systems in public life, the growth of positive legal activity, the reduction of the level of illegal behavior, the minimization of social conflicts at all levels, and as well as ensuring the availability of quality and useful material and spiritual social goods for all citizens.

Key words: effectiveness of legal regulation, law-making, legal norms, morality,religion, human rights, social regulation.
