The article aims to determine the possibilities of improving students' legal culture formation by integrating legal psychology knowledge in times of war. Through testing and a formative experiment, the study confirms the hypothesis that integrating legal psychology positively impacts the formation of students' legal culture in war conditions. Students showed average indicators of legal culture criteria, which proves that young people as subjects of the law may deliberately violate the law and be prone to illegal behaviour, discrimination, etc. Such data indicate that the students under the study may be prone to criminal behaviour under unfavourable conditions, as they have a basic level of knowledge about the legal system, unstable motivation for legal behaviour, fragmented legal competencies, a predominant orientation towards stereotyped, patriarchal values of gender culture, and different types of personal self-determination in the system of patriarchal and egalitarian coordinates. It can be argued that the legal culture formation programme significantly impacts the formation of respect for human rights in the educational environment and reduces the propensity for illegal and non-violent behaviour
