Legal technique is a branch of knowledge about the rules of doing legal work and creating in the process a variety of legal documents, which had previously been part of the theory of law. In modern conditions of the legal technique are isolated in a separate branch of legal science, focused on solving practical problems. The purpose of this article is to analyze the types of legal techniques, in particular, on the basis of theoretical propositions about legal technique to allocate substantial characteristics and types of legal technique. O. Malko and M. Matuzov consider legal technique as a set of rules, techniques, methods of preparation, creation, registration of legal documents, their classification and accounting for their excellence, efficient use. A similar meaning is investing in this concept Alekseev, determining that the legal technique is a set of tools and techniques used in accordance with accepted rules in the formulation and systematization of legal acts to ensure their perfection. So, legal technique – theoretical and applied legal science, which studies the regularities of rational legal practice in the creation, interpretation and implementation of law. In relation to the type of legal techniques in the literature proposed different classifications. For example, G. Muromtsev technique, which is used only in the field of law, divide on the technique of law-making (legislative technique), technique of law enforcement, interpretation, technique of judicial speech, interrogation, notarial activities. V. Kartashov shared legal technique on law making and enforcement (prorealtime), interpretive yourself and prevacidrebatezw, judicial or investigative, prosecutorial, and the like. Some authors clearly indicate that the criterion by which to distinguish types of legal techniques. So, S. Alekseev notes that legal technique is classified from the point of view of the legal nature of the act made on: a) techniques of legal acts; b) the techniques of individual legal acts. Among the tools of legal techniques particular importance play legal monitoring technique and the technique of publication of normative legal acts. Legal monitoring is the systematic, comprehensive activities aimed at the monitoring, analysis, evaluation of existing legislation and its enforcement, with the aim of improving the effectiveness of legislation and its future prediction. Technique the publication of regulations – a set of techniques and methods regulatory definition of an advertisement that is issued on behalf of the rule-making authority, addressed to General information and contains a complete and guaranteed the exact text of the adopted normative legal act. The main criterion for the classification of legal technique is the stages of legal regulation (law-making, law enforcement, realization of the right). Therefore, we can identify six types of legal techniques: law-making technique; the technique of publication of normative legal acts; the technique of systematization of legal acts; interpretation equipment; machinery of enforcing rights; enforcement technique.
