The purpose of the article is to highlight the principles of the acquisition of legal competencies by non-lawyers in the context of interdisciplinarity and multiculturalism of modern legal education. The task of the research is to differentiate the concepts of legal awareness and legal training in the educational system. The research methodology is based on the use of both the usual general scientific arsenal and specific scientific, pedagogical, scientific, and legal methodological elements. A separate methodological component is the principle of systematization of legal knowledge, which is implemented exclusively in the educational space. As a promising area of research, it is advisable to determine the need to form a holistic paradigm of human legal consciousness, which will be based on legal education training regardless of the specialty and specialization of the student. Thus, legal training in the educational environment has a number of criteria which determine the quality of acquisition of knowledge of jurisprudence by specialists of non-legal specialties. Among them are: legal knowledge as an element of flexible skills, legal education as part of general humanitarian-oriented competencies, legal consciousness as one of the main worldview components of civil society.
