Equality, freedom and justice: value‑legal properties

The article investigates the problems of the value approach to understanding the important social priorities, determines the value-legal properties of equality, freedom and justice as the basic foundations of liberal-democratic institutions and fundamental principles of building a democratic society. The axiological aspect of law is the level of its compliance with such value categories as equality, freedom and justice. Correct understanding and regulation of the above categories are an important pre-condition of determining and solving a lot of practical matters, in particular, the ways of resurrecting the democratic and social state. The author investigates the evolutional processes of understanding of legal equality, freedom, in a right and directions of their correlation as fundamental principles of construction of modern vectors of development of the state and right. The author offers his own description of the above paradigms, outlines them the value bases and directions of changes in the conditions of the modern globalisation processes.
