The construction of a legal state in the post-Soviet space is impossible without an effective, free and open national judiciary as a regulator of social relations. The achievement of independence marked the task of creating a legal system that meets international standards to the Republic of Kazakhstan. A natural result of the lawmaking process was the adoption of the Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan in 1995 - the basic Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the best of legacies of the twentieth century. Improvement of the legislative and procedural norms of activity of the courts, improvement of the judicial system, the introduction of alternative ways of resolving disputes and conflicts, provision of access to justice to large sectors of citizens, the increasing professionalism of the judiciary in Kazakhstan – are the main challenges of the near future. For post-Soviet countries, the norm is the lack of any elements of the national law, minimum standards of human rights, professionalism, objectivity and independence of the judiciary, as well as partial or complete pretentiousness of the Constitution. The study shows the steps that have been taken and envisaged to address these problems.
