With the help of the law it is impossible to solve all problems in society. Law has limits of regulatory influence. Particularly it is necessary to use the legal tools among prisoners, where law as a regulator is most vulnerable. Here it is impossible to act without social regulators of a different kind: customs, corporate norms, moral norms, religious norms. Do not forget about the means of psychological and pedagogical influence that accompany the action of social regulators and are able to strengthen the effect of their application. The study of the limits of legal regulation is very informative through the problems of legal regimes, and in the penal sphere – penal regimes. Despite some attention to the issue of legal regimes on the pages of educational literature their cognitive-regulatory potential is used inefficiently. Analysis of approaches to the definition of the concept of «legal regime» and its specific phenomenon – the penal regime – indicates the expediency of including in the definition as an essential indication of the creation of conditions for achieving certain goals. In this combination the regulatory impact of the legal regime loses its illusory quality. Achieving the main goal of law – the protection and regulation of social relations – is possible only in conditions of effective social interaction. Convicts need to be actively involved in interaction with the administration to solve social and domestic issues. Communication in the «not allowed» mode will not contribute to the goals of the execution of punishments, will cause only the rejection and deterioration of the negotiating positions. K e y w o r d s : legal regime; penal regime; educational and legal impact; interdisciplinary interaction; mechanism of legal regulation; the purpose of punishment; criteria for correcting the convicted person.
