In this article the authors are analyzing different approaches to understanding of legal precedent as a source of law in formal sense. The authors think that the essence of the precedent should be deeply studied in legal science. As a conclusion authors suggest that there can be distinguished two main models of legal precedent: Anglo-American and civil models. And the role of the legal precedent in each concrete country should be analyzed according to these two models.
