This study demonstrated results of empirical research empathic features and personal characteristics of psychology students. The study was conducted on 60 students enrolled at the faculty of "Legal psychology" of the Moscow State Psychological and Pedagogical University: 30 1st year students aged 17 to 20 years (28 girls and 2 boys), 30 5th year students aged 21 to 24 years (22 girls and 8 boys). One of the main objectives of this study was to identify the characteristics of empathic ability in psychology students at various stages of training. During the analysis of the results, in particular, it was found that undergraduate students empathy indices are higher, as opposed to younger students. However, none of the students has not been found a high level of empathy, which suggests the need to create conditions conducive to educational development as an essential element for effective professional activity.
