The issues of developing the professional self-consciousness of a lawyer are becoming particularly relevant due to the aggravation of contradictions between the existing level of practical training of future lawyers and the objective needs of improving higher legal education. In this regard, an important social and psychological task of the higher law school at the present stage of society development is the formation of a professionally-oriented self-consciousness of future lawyers as a prerequisite for their further successful activity. The problem of creating such conditions that would allow constant improvement of lawyers’ self-consciousness is of great importance. Practice shows that only those specialists who are able to include these changes in the context of the cognitive, emotional and behavioral components of their personality, having meaningfully and instrumentally mastered them at the level of understanding, attitude and activity, can adapt to diverse, cardinal changes in the conditions of professional activity.
The efficiency of the professional activity of future lawyers is determined by the peculiarities of their professional self-consciousness, which cannot be developed without purposeful work on the formation of knowledge and skills necessary for young professionals in the conditions of changing reality, on the development of professionally significant qualities that enable young specialists not only to adapt to the conditions of professional activity, but also to engage in it with the greatest benefit for their personal development and professional success.
The choice of the topic for this study was based on the need to determine the features of the manifestation of personal self-consciousness in the activity and to develop diagnostic tools for their assessment, search and determination of the conditions and factors for the development of general characteristics of professional self-consciousness of future lawyers that determine the efficiency of their activity.
