The article presents the results of theoretical and experimental analysis of study of the influence of psychological settings,dominant sensory modalities of law students on the effectiveness of solving professional legal problems. The main purpose of thispaper is a theoretical and empirical study of the influence of psychological settings (readiness) on peculiar solving of legal issues by lawstudents. The author argues that the basis for solving a professional legal problem by a law student is his unconscious readiness to solvethe problem, i.e. a setting which essentially defines the way, the quality, and level of solving situational professional legal problems.In addition, the presence of the dynamic characteristics of the setting at law students contributes to the manifestation of high levelsof efficiency, productivity in solving legal problems, and therefore they often have a creative approach solution during the search.In addition, the presence of the dynamic characteristics of the setting of law students contributes to the manifestation of high levelof efficiency, productivity in solving legal problems, and therefore they often have a creative approach when searching for a solution.But in non‑creativeapproach to solving legal problems the rigid type of setting is manifested, that is, its roughness and subject’s“hanging” in the situation of solution search. During the research certain orientation towards analytical, rational and consistentmental activity in solving legal problems was recognized among the surveyed. The author argues that readiness to practice lawshould be considered as an integral manifestation of personal activity to overcome internal contradictions on the way to the creativeimplementation of plans and programs of activities. The next stage of the research will be the development and use of special training forlawyers and other categories of law enforcement officers aimed at developing creative ways to solve their professional legal problems.
