The contribution presents a model of professional activity of legal psychologist. It describes the directions of activity in the context of rendering of psychological help in difficult and legally significant life situations. It proposes a definition of the notion “legally significant situation”, in which the key components are the conflict interaction of the subjects of the situation in legal context and psychological consequences for its participants. The authors identify the main directions of activity of the psychologist through the description of the aims of psychological help and the content of the specialist’s activity.
