In his report the speaker presented in details the importance of the principle of “rule of law”, the problems which exist with the interpretation of the principle, as well as the legal content of the principle.

The second speaker Mr. A. Vagharsyan, the Head of the Chair of Theory of State and Law of the Law Faculty of YSU, turned in details to the philosophical-theoretical and legal content of the concept of “rule of law”, to its perception and problems of the implementation of the principle of “rule of law”.
