This article presents the results of a theoretical-legal analysis of uncertainty of the legal reality and legal consciousness as special subjects of (new) status, and ordinary citizens. Meaning of "uncertainty of the legal reality” is refined on the basis of a number of attitudes of social philosophy, including: one form of Government, social uncertainty, dependence on the manifestations of activity subject of social communication-person (citizen); social givens, which does not allow to focus on the sustainable social rules and practices, therefore, the decision always involves risk and accompanies stress for actors. Some of the justified theoretical generalizations include: uncertainty of the legal reality, in principle, not to be  overcome, since the State of awareness is a deterministic public entity status (creator of law regarded); the legal reality is possible only to minimize the uncertainty. This task assumes that you have a solid scientific basis, which as the organic segment, comprises deeply and comprehensively developed doctrine of Pravosoznanii based on the integral understanding of the right type.
