The article analyzes the factual grounds of legal regulation in relation to the countries of the Romano-Germanic (civil law) and Anglo-Saxon (common law) families of legal systems. The main peculiarities of the interpretation of the "legal fact" concept, as well as the related main trends of its study are revealed. Attention is drawn to the process of globalization, which leads to the convergence of various legal systems in terms of basic principles. As a result, it is concluded that it is necessary to search for common approaches to the differentiation of issues of law and fact in the regulation of social relations.
