ABSTRACT
The article discusses the methodological and naturalistic conception of law and legal objectivity based on the writings by Judge Richard Posner and legal scholar Brian Leiter. It informs that the naturalistic approach to law and legal objectivity is based on the methods and results of empirical science. It also informs that a naturalistic conception of law is unsuited to provide the information about law's legitimacy.
