The analysis is based on the material of bilingual and multilingual dictionaries, encyclopaedias, state legal Internet portals and Internet forums. In the study conducted from the perspective of communicative linguistics and typology of the text much attention is drawn to the role of the terms in the process of organization of the whole text, in this case the legal text, claiming the status of an enshrined and codified document, made in a certain style, meaning a strict selection, combination and organization of language means.
