Abstract. The article analyzes bibliography of academic literature on regulatory legal acts and local legal acts. A comparison is made of attitudes of scholars of the Soviet and Russian jurisprudence. The author brings to light attributes of local legal acts which have synthesized the best practice of researchers and are enriched with the author’s attitude. The division of local acts in intraorganizational and externally oriented ones developed by the author is valuable in practice. The author proposes classification of acts according to a number of persons subject to them. On quantitative basis the acts are divided in:1) regulatory legal acts (affecting an indefinite range of persons); 2) local regulatory legal acts (affecting members of an organization); and 3) ad hoc legal acts (affecting a personified subject).
