Abstract

The purpose of the research is to define the main characteristics of legal irresponsibility through the social concept of “anomie”. The research focuses on the social relations that are not regulated by social norms to the due degree, including the legal norms, as well as the conflict-based social relations caused by deviant behavior. Dialectic, formal legal, and comparative legal methods were used in the research process. The article offers a review of scientific ideas on the concept of legal irresponsibility and its characteristics based on the concept of anomie. While defining legal irresponsibility as an antipode to positive legal responsibility, the authors emphasize that this notion is not identical to such phenomena as an offense, legal anomie, and legal nihilism. Special attention is given to the institutional level of legal irresponsibility and the characteristics of legal responsibility relevant to the institutional level are analyzed.
