Abstract

The article analyses the problem of an underinvestigated attitude of school learners towards legal education. Since legal education in schools is a freely chosen study subject and the curriculum of the majority of education institutions do not cover this discipline, the research was conducted to identify school learners’ attitude towards legal education. The survey invoked 310 school students from grades 8-12. The obtained data were processed applying methods of mathematical statistical analysis. In order to define the meaningful differences between the variables, x2 criterion and Pearson’s correlation coefficient were applied. The research results are provided in the conclusions.
