The essence of the legal resocialization of convicts is the correction of illegal ideas, assessments and behavioral attitudes formed as a result of inadequate perception of legal relations by a person, and the development of his ability to orientation and selfdetermination in the legal space on the basis of acceptance of the values of law. The systemic values of law include: «Legality», «Equality», «Dignity». Generalized criterion of the effectiveness of the legal re-socialization stands the trajectory of legal reintegration, which is understood as the dynamics of the process of resocialization taking into account the level of mastery of the socio-legal expertise at certain stages in this process. The trajectory of legal resocialization provides for the fixation of a consistent transition from one stage of the process of legal resocialization to another, allows to correlate external and internal influences on the formation of a certain type of legal position in a juvenile convict. The legal position of juvenile offenders of the correctional institution is a relatively stable characteristic, as a minor offers the prospect to move on to another, higher level with their usual strategy of legal behavior. With the help of the criterion-the trajectory of legal resocialization it becomes possible to predict the vector of further development of the legal position of the juvenile. The positive dynamics of the latter is largely determined by the content of pedagogical support, which confirms the experimental work carried out on this problem in a number of penal colonies.
