The development of law has always been accompanied by the formation of legal doctrines, which are usually understood as a generalized scientific and legal attitude to general and specific issues of law. This article proposes to consider the most effective implementation of legal doctrines in judicial practice, which contributes to empirical enrichment and effectiveness of law. The study of law in three dimensions, legal theory, legal doctrine and law enforcement, confirms that the effective functioning of this three-dimensional system is possible on the basis of interpenetration and interaction of its constituent elements. The convergence of legal systems contributed not only to the adoption of timetested ideas and strengthening the integration principles, but also to the evolution of law enforcement, which clearly demonstrates the development of European constitutional justice. The influence of general doctrines on law enforcement is considered from the standpoint of the formation of judicial doctrines on the basis of judicial discretion, lawmaking, legal interpretation and argumentation, which serve not only to create reasonable legal methods for resolving specific cases, taking into account the principles and concepts of law, but also to deepen the connection between the theory of law and law enforcement. The judicial doctrine thus represents a proven approach to the solution of specific court cases in the context of the achievements of legal science and judicial practice, confirmed by the authority of the judiciary, simultaneously aimed at their development.
