Abstract:The integrative theory of law, like any social theory, needs constant updating and development in accordance with the dynamics of the development of society and the state. This requirement to a greater extent refers to the practical part of the theory, but the conceptual basis of integrative legal understanding (the fundamental component of the theory) should also be in the focus of research. This article attempts to identify and form some elements of the practical basis of integrative theory. It shows what is law, what elements it consists of and how they are situationally manifested in practice. All these aspects of law are important for the effective work of the legislator, the practicing lawyer, since they form the basis of the methodology used by the effective lawyer. The author discusses what constitutes law, as an element of practice, in different situations from the point of view of the integrative theory: in a situation outside of a specific legal relationship; in a situation of the emergence and functioning of a simple specific legal relationship; in a situation of the emergence and functioning of a complex specific legal relationship; in a situation of a gap in objective law; in the situation of the offense in a specific relationship; in the situation of the offense in a specific destructive relationship.
