In legal science and practice, the term “legal regulation” often denotes various phenomena. This leads to a violation of the logical law of identity and theoretical difficulties. The article presents a description of four independent approaches to legal regulation: functional, narrow cybernetic, power-based, and content-specific. The functional understanding of legal regulation presents it as a kind of impact of the law on public relations, during which legal consequences arise, that is, changes in the rights, legitimate interests and obligations of subjects of law, narrow cybernetic - as the movement of administrative legal information from its generators to addressees, power-based - as the activities of a powerful subject to use legal means within the framework of procedures to ensure the onset of legal consequences; content and industry - as a set of texts of legal regulations, systematized by industry criterion. Each approach has a tradition of application. A functional understanding of legal regulation is the most conceptual and practically grounded.

Keywordslegal regulation, methodological approach, legal consequences, functional approach, narrow cybernetic approach, power-action approach, content-based industry approach, legal terminology, polysemy, scientific problem
